As of Feb 2019, this pattern (along with several others in my store) has been deactivated so I can update the PDF with a more standardized layout and style. Contact me directly if you would like to purchase it before the new version is out OR if you would like to be notified when the update is complete! Thank you so much!

“Falvey” is a very quick lace and seed stitch hat. It is one in a series of “chemo caps” designed for my Aunt Pat during her chemo treatments for breast cancer. It was with great honor that I accepted these commissions and really enjoyed thinking of her while making them! The hat has an almost helmet-like shape to it that I really enjoy.

This design is named “Falvey” after my Irish grandmother’s maiden name. She also survived breast cancer, although she is no longer with us today.
