I would like to know where you found the pattern for the skull beanie ? I have a neice who has leukemia and would really like it if I made it for her !

I've never made one but there are patterns on Ravelry for "cancer caps" like this one:

I believe it is free. And you can totally change it up because it is a pretty straight forward pattern.

Great idea to make your neice something pretty as she goes through her treatment. You're a great uncle.

First, I am SO sorry to hear about your neice! I hope she is able to win her battle against this formidable foe.
How old is she? I bought a great beanie pattern from SweaterBabe for an adult. It was actually one of the first things I made (in every color!) and it was unbelieavably easy. I'll happily scan it and sent it to you if you'd like to see it. I cannot remember how much Sweater Babe charged, but I also noted that she had a child's version of the same.
Let me know where to send the pattern if that is your wish.


She was diagnosed when she was 15 she is now 18 she had bone marrow transplant 2 months ago she just came home yesterday after being in hospital for 3 months . We were surfing web and found this site and she really liked the skull beanie so I told her I would find the pattern no matter what and make it for her . Thanks for the help and my e-mail is
