A Hat for Mary
A friend of mine found out just before Christmas that she had a brain tumor. Since then, she's had surgery and found out that it's cancer. She'll be starting radiation and chemo therapy soon. I wanted to make her a chemo cap and found a pattern that I really liked on Ravelry ("Laced-Edged Women's Hat"). The pattern suggested Rowan Cashsoft yarn but I couldn't find it. So, I used Bernat Satin. It lives up to it's name because it's very soft and has a bit of a sheen like satin. It's such a pretty pink too. I had to do a lot of swatching to get the right gauge. I ended using size eights. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I hope she likes it and that it reminds her of how much she is loved.
