ribbon hats
Created By: Sandy La Gasse
Craft: knit
Pattern Source: other:

Hi! My name is Sandy, and I created a pattern for an awareness ribbon hat to raise money for my local Relay for Life. The Relay for life raises money for research to find a cure for cancer.

I made 37 hats in different colors this past summer. Each color represented a different form of cancer. Most popular was lavender (all cancers), pink (breast cancer), and lime green,(lymphoma). This hat is easy to make, and I could crank one out in about 4 hours.

The Grey hat is for brain cancer. I knitted this with Woolease Grey Heather. There are 7 embossed "ribbons" on each beanie.
You can see 4 of them in the pic along the brim.

I had many co-workers interested in buying these hats for the cause, and a lot of people were fascinated by how many colors there were, representing the different cancers. So far, I know of at least 21.

I love making this pattern, because I know it's for a good cause. I lost my dad to lymphoma, and it does my heart good to see people beating that particular form of cancer now.
It just goes to show that our medical research has come a long way since 1982 when my dad passed away.
