The Mary Anne Hat/Chemo Hat
The Mary Anne is a lightweight cotton hat, with the pattern written for three sizes. It is knit from the bottom up and in the round using DK weight cotton yarn & a stretchy elastic yarn (Cascade Fixation) in the brim. Techniques used are simple 2 color stranded work in the wide brim and an easy lace pattern in the body. Pattern directions are clearly written for the techniques, making them a breeze to follow! Two brim versions are included- one with a plaid “illusion”! A large decorative wooden button accents the whole look!
Wear it to look cool or wear it on a cool summer night, or even a bad hair day & look beautiful! Make it up in Fall colors too! It is flattering on any age! It is also a very popular chemo hat, with the wide brim fitting like a soft hug around the head!
This hat is dedicated to my maternal grandmother, Mary Anne, who immigrated here from Nova Scotia so many years ago!
