2016 Cancer Challenge – Day 1 – Sweet Potato 3

It’s finally October 1st and the 2016 Cancer Challenge is officially underway!
Get those hooks out, give them a good cleaning and let’s begin.

Day 1:

 I, Christine owner of Sweet Potato 3, will be starting off the challenge today by offering this free crochet hat pattern.

I designed the Cancer Charity Hat for 2016 with warmth and quickness in mind because the more hats we can make the people we can help out. The simple design will appeal to anyone; male, female, youth, or adult. The hat is made with a bulky weight yarn but uses a fun and quick stitch to crochet. The thin stitch makes a bulky hat that…well, is not too bulky.

 Remember, if you download this pattern (or any pattern provided during the challenge running all month long), you are pledging to make a minimum of one hat  to donate to a cancer patient. 

The pattern includes sizes for children up to adult.


The Cancer Charity Challenge Hat for 2016 will be FREE through the end of 2016.


Please visit Sweet Potato 3 on facebook and share pictures of your completed hats to help inspire others to join in our efforts.

    There’s no pattern on the ravelry page nor your Facebook page. Today’s a perfect day for me to make this hat. Thanks

    Just had a friend diagnosed with Leukemia… Will be making her several hats… sadly, missed the one yesterday. My daughter is a breast cancer survivor… I am always making hats to donate to the Cancer Society. Thank you!
