I’m so excited to be participating in the Crochet Cancer Challenge again this year! I look forward to this event every year, and as the years go by it grows nearer and dearer to my heart.

If you haven’t heard of the Crochet Cancer Challenge, it was created by Christine of Sweet Potato 3 in 2013 when she lost her uncle to cancer. She wanted to do something to honor him, so she created this awesome event.

The event takes place every year in October and lasts the entire month. Each day (Monday – Saturday) a new crochet beanie pattern is released and is free for that day with a special code IN EXCHANGE for a pledge to make at least one hat. The hat can either be gifted to someone who is battling cancer or donated to a local hospital or cancer center.

Pattern Details

My 2023 contribution to the challenge is a crochet beanie pattern that I call, Pop’s Beanie. It is a simple, no frills beanie and it reminds me of one my late grandfather used to wear. I named it Pop’s Beanie in memory of him.

This beanie has a bit of a different construction than most. It is worked flat in rows to create a rectangle. The entire rectangle is worked with just one stitch. Then the rectangle is sewn together along the ends and cinched closed at the top.

I used Mary Maxim Mellowspun DK (#3) yarn for this hat. This yarn is 100% acrylic and so soft. It comes in many colors and is machine washable. It’s a really great yarn for soft hats that will be gifted or donated.
