Pattern Details

These patterns are FREE on our blog, but we have this PDF for sale if you would like to have a printer-friendly version. These hats were designed exclusively for The Dancing Sheep Yarn & Fiber but now we want to share them with you. One of our patterns that has been repinned and shared the most often is this pattern for two different kinds of chemo caps. Thanks to our faithful readers, we have perfected this pattern and wanted to re-release it in its new and improved version. Continue to share your stories of hope and healing as you use these chemo caps to stand with our sisters. Our hope is that many of you will crochet hats for our sisters struggling with cancer and wrap them up in love and hope by this simple act. Here's how we came up with the names for these designs: Charlotte, the yarn shop's owner, says some women are doves, some women are peacocks. Doves appreciate the simple elegance in life. Peacocks delight in boldness and revel in intricate designs. There is a hat dedicated to each type of woman. These patterns will be left up for you to use forever. Our hope is you will only use these patterns to bless someone else. They don't necessarily need to be going through chemo. Please do not sell your finished project or alter this pattern in any way that will result in personal gain.
