Cap Karma

This blog is set up for the cap making community of ladies at the San Francisco International Airport. The caps are for chemo patients and are donated to a local hospital. The hand made caps (knitted or crocheted) are a token of our prayers and well wishes for the recipient.

Sarah inspired me to make a little sweater for my furry friend. I couldn't get him to pose for me to show some of the detail. He's not use to wearing clothes =) .

Green Variegated Beaufort

Here is my completed beaufort hat. I finished it this past weekend. I know you can't see the pattern very well since I used the green variegated yarn. I think this looks better using a solid color. Smariek posted the picture and link to this pattern back in January.


Chevron Hat

This is a relatively simple hat to make. I found the pattern on knitting central:
Cast on 100 stitches. Round 1: Purl. (First round of hat only: Slip first stitch. Purl to last stitch. Purl last stitch with slipped first stitch, being careful not to twist the row. This will close the round and decrease one stitch. 99 st. Place marker.) Round 2, 4: Knit. Round 3, 5: Purl. Rounds 6, 8, 10, 12: * k2tog, k2, k2f&b, k3, sl1, k1, psso rep from * Rounds 7, 9, 11: Knit.
Repeat rounds 1-12 three more times. You should have a total of four chevrons.
Switch to double pointed needles (or continue with the circular needle until about round 6, then switch to dpn). I suggest purling off an equal number of stitches on to the double pointed neeedles on the first decrease round.
Round 1: Purl (no decrease).Round 2: *k2tog, k7, K2tog. (81 st)Round 3: Purl. Round 4: *k2tog, k5, K2tog. (63 st)Round 5: Purl. Round 6: *k2tog, k3, K2tog. (45 st)Round 7: Knit. Round 8: *k2tog, k1, K2tog. (27 st)Round 9: Knit. Round 10: k1, *k2 tog. (14 st)

Cut the yarn leaving about 6" tail. Using a tapestry needle, thread the tail through the remaining stitches. Pull stitches together tightly. Thread tail through hole in crown. Draw crown closed securely by pulling tail. Weave the tail and all other ends through stitches on wrong side.
