A dear friend of ours is battling cancer of the pharynx. His two daughters go to school with two of ours and are all good friends. As a special tribute to his battle, I knit him a little hat with a yellow stripe to signify his survival. He is done with his chemo now and over half way through his radiation.....he has an amazing spirit and a wonderful family that are all helping him win! Hat's off to you, John :D
The pattern I used was Jared Flood's "Turn a Square". Yarn is Needful Yarns "London Tweed" and the yellow stripe was Elann's Peruvian Highland Wool in "Daffodil". The Tweed is super soft and fluffy and I think it would be fine to wear next to his skin. I love the flecks of color in the yarn too!
