a knitter of eleven years exploring the world of blog.
I whipped this up for the Yarn Harlot appearance at Knitch here in Atlanta. Since I don’t have a website, I posted the pattern for it here and also on my blog for anybody who wants a quick knit chemo cap for whatever reason. I modified the little cable fabric pattern from the 365 knitting stiches a year calendar.
