It has been a LONG time since I had one of these. I've been poking along on a number of larger projects, but here, for your finished-object perusal, is the Simple Pleasures Hat:
here, the yarn was not. I made this hat for a friend's mom, who is going through both chemo and radiation cancer treatments. Of course it needs to be soft and comfortable and lightweight, so I went all out for the yarns: Jade Sapphires' Cashmere-Silk and Rowan's Kid Silk Haze. The color is actually a pale peach. (My house is blue, not the beige that shows up in this photo!)
I should mention that I just copied the store sample at The Knitting Tree.
It certainly makes an amazing chemo cap -- just saying, in case you know someone who needs one.
