A Promise Knit Hat


This is a design for Delaware Head Huggers, an organization dedicated to the creation and collection of chemo caps. This pattern uses worsted weight yarn size 7 needles for a quick-knit hat to share with someone who needs some love. If you're feeling particularly generous, gather a bunch of different colors of yarn and knit as many as you can to donate to the cause. Not only will you be doing a good thing, but you'll get to do what you love and make a stunning hat!


Knitting Needle Size7 or 4.5 mm, Circular Knitting Needles, Double-Pointed Knitting Needles (DPNs)

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

Gauge0 stitches, 0 rows, 0 inches.

This is a smaller cap - which was what we were aiming for. If you want it to be larger, you can add some stitches, in multiples of 3 between each 27 row repeat, so if you wanted to go up a bit in size, instead of casting on 81, which is 27 x 3, you would cast on 90, which is 30 x 3 and so on. Just purl the extra stitches in all rows.

Absolutely adore the style of this pattern. Going to print this out and make a batch to donate to our local Cancer center here in NC/SC. Thank you for graciously donating these patterns for our use!
