A wonderful friend of mine recently started chemo and I wanted to make her some things since I can’t be there. I have read that chemo patients like soft fibers so when I found the new velvety yarn by Red Heart Yarns I knew it would be perfect. Would it be too thick for a hat? it was definitely worth a try and guess what…
UPDATE: if you have a hard time finding this yarn, no worries! This can be made from your favorite #4 or #5 weight yarn.
I LOVE THIS YARN! I am totally addicted to it. Think I could make a full bodysuit out of it to wear? It is a size 5 (bulky) weight yarn, but it is super soft and limp…if that makes sense…so it was perfect. The yarn has a slight difference in color, creating highlights. My hat looks like a sweater. I know she will love it.
After making the hat I returned to the store and bought FIVE more skeins to make three more hats (one per skein) and a scarf (shown in the photos).
It’s so new I haven’t seen it in many stores, but here are some links for buying it online:
