  1. I'm using sort of a memorized pattern I guess you'd say. 12 dc's on the 1st round, then 24, then 36, etc. I'm using a lightweight yarn, so I got up to 84 stitches before it was about 6.5" across and time to start working down the sides.
  2. My basic beanie is flat on top as it should be, and when I stop the increases to start working down the side, if I lay it flat, it's puckered. My stitch count is correct. I've crocheted for many years and I've seen this before but haven't made hats for awhile so I haven't had this problem for a long time. As I work more down the side, the hat has sort of a boxy look, kinda square-ish on top since the top was made in a flat circle. Does someone have another good method?
  3. I'm making a hat (84 sts) on dpn's and it's about to drive me bonkers because the stitches keep falling off the ends of the needles. This is only the 2nd time I've made a hat in the round, thereby avoiding a seam up the back. Would this be easier (or even feasible) on circular needles? I haven't done that before. It seems like circular needles would be too long for something as small as a hat, but I don't really know. I hope someone with more experience can point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance!

    Chemo Caps

    I want to make some chemo-type hats for my MIL, who will be undergoing brain surgery next month for Parkinson's Disease. I've never made hats like this, so I don't know where to start. I think they'll need to be extra soft and warm, as her head will be bald and scarred, and the fall chill is here. Any input from others who have made similar items? Yarn type(s), pattern(s), etc.? Maybe even sewn hats from fleece? Thanks in advance! Croshay
  6. I really like this. I hope you'll show us a photo when you're finished.
  7. I chose Red Heart super saver for making an afghan - because of the availability of so many colors - but I find this yarn to be stiff and scratchy. What do you guys and gals use for good color choices with softness?
  8. These are the other 2 colors I'll use, Red Heart super saver in gold and carrot. I'll also use white, but there's no point in adding a graphic of that color.
  9. These are 3 of the colors I'll use...2 more to follow... These are Red Heart super saver yarn in turqua, shocking pink, and soft navy.
  10. These are the colors she has decided on now. I'm going to use yarn in colors as close to these as I can get, and I'm going to put white in between them somehow. Haven't decided yet on a pattern...
  11. The pattern uses 2 colors, but I might use it with more colors instead.
  12. It doesn't look hard to duplicate, if you can get a clear photo printed. I'd sure try that before paying the price on Etsy!
  13. I love the triangle-shaped ones...they cover your back better, so they're warmer.
