A Path To Recovery

April 2013
Worsted (9 wpi) ?
4 stitches and 8 rows = 1 inch
in Stockinette
US 6 - 4.0 mm
4.0 mm (G)
110 - 115 yards (101 - 105 m)
One Size ( 8 1/2" from brim to top and up to 23" in diameter)

When a friend was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, she let me know that she would be undergoing chemotherapy, which meant she would be losing her hair and would need a few hats. I wanted to create something special for women who were undoing the same thing as my friend and came up with “A Path to Recovery”. I incorporated a ladder of eyelets, which represents a journey through this most difficult time. As progress is made, a ribbon can be tied through the eyelets representing a path to recovery.

Note: This is a single skein project perfect for
all levels of knitting. The end is a very simple crochet chain that creates a slight brim. If you opt out of the crochet brim, be sure to knit 8 rounds at the set
up in place of 4 rounds.

Yarn: 1 Skein of Rowan Softknit Cotton or 120 yards of any worsted weight yarn to match gauge

• 16” (and a set of DPNs) US Size 6 (4.0mm)
• Crochet hook size G (US6 or 4.0mm)
• Tapestry needle for weaving in the ends

Gauge: 4 sts plus 8 rows = 1” in Stockinette
