a pink rosebud.

pink rosebud
modeled on me and raveled here

…an email landed in my inbox last thursday – my friend shari’s sister has breast cancer and she starts chemo tomorrow. could I recommend some hat patterns?

well of course I could (and I did) – and I quickly grabbed one for myself.

I had fave’d rosebud as soon as it was released (I have a “few” skeins of stash yarn that would work perfectly for the pattern) and I loved having a great reason to buy the pattern and excuse a few of my other knitting goals to make room for a hat.

jared flood does not disappoint. the pattern is beautifully laid out, clearly written, and results in a lovely finished hat. (check out my ravelry project page to see the few changes I made).

I’m bummed that the hat doesn’t really look pink in any of the photos. but trust me, it is!

I’m looking forward to knitting it again (for me 🙂

in process – through the first repeat of the chart

lovely decrease detail…

  1. Just lovely! And I'm sure your sister's friend will love and appreciate it! When I had chemo, my favorite hats were snug-fitting around the head, with a bit of a slouch to the top/back (to suggest that maybe, just maybe, there was hair under there!). Looks like this one would really work well!

  2. I'm so sorry about your friend's sister. If only we could all scream loud enough to remove Cancer from the face of the Earth.That's a beautiful hat and it looks very cute on you!c
