Off my needles

I may not have done any sewing while the girls were here the last several days but I did stay up and knit at night after everyone else had gone to bed. This is hat #29 and it’s a variation of the pattern below. Stephanie from my HeartStrings group has been knitting hats along with me and said she’d knit this one only using rows 1-4 of the pattern for the body of the hat and I thought I’d give it a try too. I like how it turned out.

I’ve linked to the actual hat pattern below but check out the main pattern page on the Knots of Love site for other free patterns.

  • Free pattern found online at Knots of Love – William’s Chemo Hat
  • Needle size – 8
  • Yarn – KnitPicks Swish Tonal

I did get back in the sewing room tonight after the game and started another set of Strips and Strings Rail Fence blocks. My goal is to finish my 365 block challenge by the end of the holiday weekend. I need 55 blocks and this quilt will take 48 of them.


  1. You got to #29 – well done. I’m on my second round and at #13 – my goal being 20 before I hand them over. I’m also doing a variation of William – I like changing patterns around. My next sewing challenge is making an ostomy bag for a friend – not difficult as I have one to make a template from 🙂

  2. This one is great for boys and I love it. Yes I know girls would like it too but so many are more girly looking by the standards of today.
