This year for the Crochet Cancer Challenge, Christine of Sweet Potato 3 (the organizer behind this amazing month long hat-raiser, had asked us to pick a type of cancer to design our hats for to represent and bring to light some different kinds.
I chose brain cancer. Why? I fear it. Some of the symptoms of tumors, like headaches and migraines or weird things with vision are things that I experience regularly. If something were to come up and those were the only symptoms I had? No bueno. Not knowing things is not something this girl can handle.
So I bring to you the Radioactive Beanie. The spiral on the top of the hat represents the feeling of spiraling when you get bad news, but also the sun; because there is always hope. The diamonds around the bottom signifies the strength it takes to battle the beast and the love and faith built during the fight.
This pattern includes instructions for a yarmulke, a messy bun hat, and an ear warmer.
Remember, a download is a pledge to donate the hat to a fighter or a survivor!

There seem to have been some issues with my website today and I sincerely apologize for all of the trouble. This pattern can now also be found onRavelry as a way to hopefully surpass any future issues. Thanks for your patience, and again, I am so sorry for the problems that have occurred.
As usual, please contact me if you need any help with anything. Happy hooking <3
