Hi friends! I’m excited to start a new summer crochet along in just a couple weeks! Thank you so much for your interest in joining! The Crochet Along for a Cause starts on Friday, June 22, 2018 and will last all summer long. Crocheting hats for cancer patients is something I’ve always wanted to do but (unfortunately) never got around to it. I thought it would be great for us to do this together!
There will be 1 new hat pattern every Friday for 14 weeks until Friday, September 21, 2018. Each hat pattern will be made for donation to your local cancer center/organization. You can also send your caps to a love Crochet for Cancer chapter and they can distribute them for you.

Most of the patterns will use worsted weight yarn with hook sizes 4.5 – 6.0. There might be a couple bulky weight hats sprinkled in as well. The yarn does need to be a soft cotton or acrylic. Please don’t use wool because it can irritate the scalp. Some good choices are Caron Simply Soft, I Love this Yarn, Red Heart Soft, but any soft acrylic or cotton should work.
The patterns will all be beginner friendly, maybe a couple of easier intermediate. You will need to be familiar with basic crochet stitches and techniques.
I want to try and mix up the patterns. The hats will range from children’s sizes to adult. There will be patterns geared towards women and some geared towards men. For some of the patterns I will have different sizes available so you can choose what size you want to make. And if there’s a pattern you don’t particularly like… skip it! Make a second of one you like better, or a completely different hat!
