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.

Utopia Hat

Pattern: Utopia Hat

I love the stretchiness of this cable pattern, it makes it very forgiving so that it can fit a number of different head sizes. This hat pattern seems to be a popular one, Ravelry shows that over 150 of these hats have been made.

There are different ways to change the finished size of this hat or to compensate for differences in yarn/needles/tension. For example:

-- Casting on more/less stitches in multiples of 24.
-- Choosing a needle size appropriate to the yarn you are using, +/- a size.
-- Working the K2P2 ribbing for more rounds.
-- Adding an extra repeat of the Lower Half Cable Pattern and/or the Upper Half Cable Pattern.
