This design was lovingly created as part of this year’s Crochet Cancer Challenge hosted by Sweet Potato 3. It is in support of those affected by Lung Cancer… and all cancers. As I thought about my design, I knew I wanted to make something that would add comfort and a squishy soft hug.
My Hat Contribution And Meaning
After coaching competitive soccer for 7 years, “for the team” took on a new meaning for me over the past two years. While visiting the Huntsman Center in Salt Lake City, UT with a family member and seeing many families showing their support for each other, it reminded me of being part of a team. Cancer affects so many. Friends, family, co workers, neighbors, and others need the support of a “team”.
Whether you want to sport those team colors or the favorite colors of a “team” member, I hope you will find comfort in this beanie. Many hopeful hugs and wishes of better health, strength, and love went into the creation of these beanies.
I hope you will enjoy making this beanie. My testers found it easy to make and I love how their beanies turned out! There are three options for the bottom edge and it is cute with or without the pompom top.
