SLEEP Hats Free Crochet Pattern #2 DROWSY HAT

how to crochet, free crochet patterns, sleep hats, chemo caps, bald heads, beanies, hats,

DROWSY Hat is soft and comfortable 
and keeps your head warm throughout the night.
A lovely lightweight cotton hat 
which adds enough warmth for a comfortable night's sleep.
  
Designed for people with hair loss due to cancer, 
chemotherapy, alopecia and other medical conditions,
naturally bald heads and sinus sufferers.

DROWSY Hat keeps you cozy at night any time of year!

Week #2 DROWSY Hat


Here we are in Week #2 for Sleep Hats, and I hope you enjoyed making the first Week #1 SLEEPY Hat. This week again the crochet stitches are basic single and double crochet stitches creating a simple crochet hat using two (2) colours. Of course you can always make your hat with only one (1) colour or more colours if you wish.



Drowsy Hat is made using my favourite cotton yarn from Bendigo Woollen Mills (BWM), it is cotton 8ply and you can substitute the yarn if you wish, just remember to check the YARNSUB website, to get the best match.



Please note: I started making this hat with blue and green, and then changed my mind so you will find a colour change in the photos of the hat making procedure, however it doesn't interfere with the process.
