I’ve crocheted one cap and loomed one cap for my husband. Both still leave his ears cold. It’s been below 10 degrees F most days this year (2010). So, I’ve been scouting around for another pattern for him. I finally just gave up, sorta, and took out two skeins of wool yarn and a tunisian hook. I’m making a rectangle that will fit him and will fashion a cap to suit him. He’s usually very easy to please – but his ears are COLD!
In my search online, I ran across some really attractive hats. So, I gathered up some links to some free patterns for you. Hope you like them……
This is a lovely cap – not for beginners. I’m still waiting to learn cables:
And another beauty from the same site:
I hadn’t visited this site in a while. It’s the source of the great ‘Magic Square Potholder’ pattern that is truly ‘magical’.
I love this cap too:
This one looks like it’s made with raffia to me, but the designer indicates that it’s very soft – would work well as a chemo cap. I think it looks like Spring!
One more for you. I think this cap is outstanding!! I’m working on a simple two strands of wool cap for my husband’s bald but beautiful head – and his cold ears. This one wouldn’t interest him – but it sure interests me. It’s on my WIM list:
So, get out your hooks and some great yarn and make a cap for someone you love!
