Fall Fun Festive Mix Recipe

Those of you who know me,
know my Saying, when it comes to Recipes,
"If it has more then 5 ingredients...
I am not gonna make it."
I play with yarn, not food!
But
I Love This recipe..
it is a great through together
 for any party.
1 bag of plain M&Ms
1 can of plain cocktail peanuts
1 bag of Brachs Fall candy corn mix
Throw them together in a bowl.
You could add other things,
like small pretzels or chex mix, but why????

And, the pumpkins are still my favorite!

ENJOY!

Ann's Pink Ribbon Chemo Beanie


Ann's Pink Ribbon Chemo Beanie
This Crochet Pattern is dedicated to 
My Sweet Momma who 
lost her battle with Breast Cancer July 16, 2013.
It is very important to keep a 
Chemo patients head covered, 
even during the summer months.
When you lose your hair fast, you sunburn easily, 
and even get a cold head in air conditioning. 
Also, use soft yarns as their head is 
newly "uncovered" and can be very tender.

If you would like to donate Hats to the
 "Crochet For Cancer" 
Cause you can do that through


I made a Video To help you understand the Cross Stitch rows and the Flower.



See this Video on my Youtube Channel at this LINK

Ann's Pink Ribbon Chemo Beanie Crochet Pattern By Sara Sach
Please, Add This Crochet Pattern to Your Ravelry Favorites.

Skill Level : Easy
Material:
Crochet Hook : H
Yarn Needle
Yarn : Caron Simply Soft - light beige, light pink - 3 oz. of each color
Button of choice

Stitches used:
Chain - ch
Single Crochet -sc
Double Crochet - dc
Slip stitch -sl st
Treble Crochet - trc ( for flower)

Gauge: 
15 Sts = 4” 
9 Rows = 4”

Size - Fits a 18-20 inch head


This pattern is designed for teens and adults going through chemo.
 I chose Caron simply soft, 
because it is very soft, and some of the stiffer
 yarns can be itchy and painful on naked heads.

Beanie Pattern:

Ch 3 at the end of each rows count as a dc
When changing colors, ch 2 after the color change.

R: 1 - With the light beige yarn, Ch 5, ( 1st 3 chs count as a dc)
12 dc in the 2nd ch from the hook, join in a circle with a sl st, ch 3 (12 dc)

R: 2 - 2 dc in each dc , join, ch 3 (24 dc)

R: 3 - *2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc, Repeat from * around, join, ch 3 (36 dc)

R: 7 - Dc in each dc around, join, (72 dc)

R: 8 - Cross stitch row - Change to the light pink yarn, leaving the beige attached,
Ch 4, cross back and dc in the previous st,
*skip the next st, 1 dc in the next st, cross back and dc in the skipped st*,
 Repeat from * to * around hat, join to the top of the 3rd ch,  (72 sts)

R: 9 - Change back to beige, ch 3, leaving the pink still attached, ch 2,
1 dc in each dc around, join, ch 3 (72 sts)

R: 10 - Repeat R: 8

R: 11 - Repeat R: 9

R: 12 - Repeat R: 8

R: 13-15 - Repeat R: 9, tie off beige yarn after R: 15

R: 16 - With pink yarn, 1 sc in each dc around, join, and tie off (72 sc)

For thicker brim repeat R: 16 till it is as wide as you like it.
Flower:
R: 1 - With pink yarn, ch 4, 10 dc in the 2nd ch from the hook,
join with a sl st to form a circle,
R: 2 - In the 1st ch, ( Ch 3, 3 trc, ch 3), join to the next ch,
 repeat 9 more times for 10 flower petals. Join to the 1st slst with s sl st.
Sew on the side front of the hat,
Attach a button of choice.


And it is my hope
 that Many Chemo patients can have a soft, 
and pretty hat to wear.
