Caps for Cancer
October 28, 2010 · Posted in Social Action · Permalink

Jean and I are avid needlepointers and picked this up from our favorite store, Rita’s. They are donating caps to chemo patients and we thought we would share this with you all.

CAP KNITTING INSTRUCTIONS:

Materials: One pair needles (fairly large – 8, 9 or 10), Knitting Yarn – about 2-3 ounces worsted weight or light bulky weight. We recommend soft wools and bright colors!

Cast on 88 stitches. Row 1 – k2, p2 across. Repeat this row for 8 inches.

Begin shaping. Row 1 – *k2, p2 together – repeat from *to end of row. Row 2 – k1, p2 across row on remaining 66 stitches. Row 3 – k2, p1 across. Row 4 – k1, p2 across row. Row 5 through 12 – repeat rows 3 and 4.

Row 13 – *k2 together, p1 – repeat from * to end of row. Rows 14 through 16 – k1, p1 across. Row 17 – k2 together across row.

You now have 22 stitches. Break off leaving long tail (about 36″). Pull thread thourgh the stitches as you take them off the needle. Pull tightly; fasten securely; and sew up seam.

FINI!

Finished caps may be rerturned to Rita’s needlepoint for distrubution.
