Cancer Challenge with Sweet Potato 3

Day 1: Autumn Breeze Hat Pattern by Sweet Potato 3

Before I start in on the hat for today, I want to make sure to share a little love for the designer. It is always worthwhile to thank the designer for offering her pattern to all of us:

  • Facebook for Sweet Potato 3: HERE
  • Sweet Potato 3 Blog: HERE
  • Ravelry Shop for Sweet Potato 3: HERE
  • Etsy Shop for Sweet Potato 3: HERE

Todays pattern was designed by myself and offered through my shop: Sweet Potato 3. I designed the Autumn Breeze Beanie specifically for this challenge because you can make it fairly quick and it can have many different looks just by alternating the yarn colors differently.

Sweet Potato 3 Cancer Challenge

The Autumn Breeze Beanie is made in a soft worsted weight yarn (Lion Brand Heartland) and comes in adult sizes of: Small, Medium, Large/XL.

Use Code: Cancer18

This code will be good on the Autumn Breeze Beanie through October 31, 2018 and will allow you to get the pattern for FREE, but remember….

A Download = A Pledge

This is a very important part of the Crochet Cancer Challenge. If you download any of the patterns during this month and you use the code to receive it for FREE you are PLEDGING to donate a minimum of 1 hat to a Cancer Center/Patient.

    I am interested in joining the Challenge I would like to know if the hats should be donated weekly or wait until the end of the month? And if I am reading this correctly, we can crochet as many hats as we wish each week using the pattern given. Also, I mail all my crocheted caps to a Cancer Center. Can I include these or should they be sent separately?

      Hi Marlene, thank you so much for helping out and joining this years efforts! You can wait until you are all done and donate at once (honestly, whatever is easiest for you). You can include these hats in any donation you like as long as they go to a Cancer Center or Cancer Patients <3

    My first chemo cap will be donated to the daughter of a friend of mine from Nursing school back in the 60’s. This young woman just turned 45 and was recently diagnosed with stage IIIC ovarian cancer.After that I will call the cancer center in town and if they already have enough donations I will send my caps to ST Jude’s children’s cancer center

    Thank you for doing this. I make hats for our local cancer centre throughout the year and this pattern will make a great addition!
