    As I do Voluteer work in the hospital in chemotherapy unit , I can say in truth how very welcome these hats are …especially if made in soft wool and darker colours , not baby pinks and yellows, …. If you like to knit even more check into google for “ knockers “ many woman who have had. Mastectomy are allergic to the silicone in the prosthesis they choose to wear , also they are very warm in summer ,soooo these knockers come in handy …..

  3. I think it’s because it is knitted on circular needles so when every row is knit it produces stocking stitch

    The picture looks like it’s knit in stockinette, not garter as the instructions say?!?
