Pattern Description:

I was given a skein of Chloe and asked to design a "chemo" hat.
This hat looks good with or without hair.
This hat can be knit in either a fine yarn with
more stitches for an intricate lacy look (A&B)

The instructions are given for a sport weight

weight wool in a one size fits all.


For A & B, 6sts/inch ( For C, 5sts/inch )
Both in stockinette stitch.
