Free Knitting Pattern: Chemo Cap


Lion Brand® Fun Fur - Microspun
Pattern #: W80027


3 balls of fun fur
Needles- Size 13 [9 mm]

Lion Brand® Fun Fur - Microspun
GAUGE:
10 stitches + 12 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in stockinette stitch (straight needles: knit on right side, purl on wrong side) (double-pointed needles: knit every round). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
NOTES:
Hat is very soft and stretchy. Hat is worked with two strands throughout -- one strand of Microspun and one strand of Fun Fur
