I knit this chemo hat and another one in the same pattern for two women whom I don’t know. They’re both going through chemo right now, and I wanted to knit a hat for each of them.
The pattern is called “Sisters”, named for the Three Sisters Mountains in Central Oregon. I chose this pattern because in a way, we’re all sisters, linked together. Also, because to me, mountains are strong, ikaika, and these women will need a lot of strength to get through what they’re going through.
This is the first hat that I finished. The second is like it, in blue.
