“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.
