Fun Fur Hat

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? On this cap and all hats for chemo patients I use 16" round needles so there is no seam to sew. On the crown when the number of stitches is reduced I divide the sts and add another 16" needle, and finish it off.

What you will need

  • Fun Fur by Lion Brand Yarn Co. Red Heart Shimmer

Q&A with Edna H

setongirl asked:
How do I get this pattern?
Edna H answered:
I found 2 patterns on the web: 1) www.lionbrand.com chemo cap and 2) www.knittingonthenet.com chemo cap knitting pattern. I prefer the Lionbrand but both are good. I use a round 16" knitting needle to avoid seam and at the crown as stitches decrease add another 16" round or you can use 4 double point needles. I do anything I can to avoid seams. Hope this helps.....Edna

Love this hat. Where can I get this pattern
Edna H answered:
This is an easy hat to make. You know how it is with knitters, we sort of evolve into our own thing; but basically, if I remember correctly, I used a pattern from Lion Brand Yarn with Fun Fur and a 'chemo pattern' from the web. I don't like straight needles so used round 16" and when the stitches got less and less divided them onto 2 16" needles. That way there's no seam. Hope this helps. EH
