  14. Hey I really want to make this pretty hat! But I don’t under stand this whole decreasing thing.. could you please explain?

    • Sure no problem… It is just a basic HDC decrease… In row 18 it calls to decrease 6 times evenly.. so you will do a HDC decrease 6 times spaced around the row… If you havent tried a HDC decrease before here is my preferred method…

      YO insert hook in next St, Pull up loop. YO and draw through 2 loops on hook. YO insert hook in next ST. Pull up loop. YO and draw through all 4 loops on hook.

      You are working 1 HDC over 2 stitches to make a decrease. I hope this helps

  15. I just made this hat & it turned out beautiful! Very easy and so cute. Some patterns are hard for me as I am left handed, but this was awesome. I want to start making some hats for our local hospital cancer center that just opened. Thanks so much for a great design, I just love it! Amy

  16. Thanks for the pattern, every other year I donate 50 hats to the cancer center using yarn I have left from other projects and this yr I will use this pattern.paying it forward is very rewarding!

  17. hi. im having a hard time trying to figure out how to do step 11. what does sp mean

  18. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for, for an ongoing project for myself, BUT I am a visual learner, is there any chance you have or are planning to have a youtube vid or something similar showing how to make this beautiful hat pattern?

  19. I saw this pattern on Pinterest and I’ve been looking for easy patterns to make to donate to Halos for Hope. I’m excited to try it. I’m not an expert by any stretch, but I think I can do this! 🙂

  20. I am a breast cancer survivor. I want to thank everyone who makes these hats for cancer patients. During my “bald days” these hats kept my head warm. it is surprising how cold bed pillows are even in summer. My chemo started in late winter so the hats were a Godsend for me. I especially liked the super soft yarn ones! I am fine now but I will always remember my hats. They kept me warm but they also let me hide my bald head, which so labels you as “cancer patient”, and let me keep my illness private to a degree. Thank all of you ! 🙂

  21. Thank you so much for sharing. My sister is a breast cancer survivor. We both make hats and prayer shawls for cancer patients and these are great patterns. God bless you for sharing and I know your friend is safely in God’s company smiling and watching over you.

  22. This is a small world! I love your site, and I live in Yreka, CA! l make all kinds of hats and am happy that I found this cute one and it looks like it is an easy one! Thank you for sharing your patterns! 🙂

  23. […] Amazing Grace Hat from Beatrice Ryan Designs – It’s still ab bit chilly out there, and this would make a great spring […]

  24. I am very new to crocheting and rely heavily on the patterns… I am confused by row 3- what is the repeating pattern? Usually you repeat what is between the (*), but there is only one (*)… Please help!! I love this pattern and love the story behind it!!

  25. This is a great hat for patience with alopecia. I plan to make some for some and donate them.

  26. Very nice looking hats ! Could you tell me please if you left off row 27 on the pink hat in the middle at the bottom of the page? I like the looks of it more as it seems to have a less wider edge & I’m thinking of making this hat. Thank you in advance. 🙂

    • Thank you!! There is only 21 rows, so I am thinking you mean row 21 the Rev Sc row… Yes, it looks like the pink hat does not have that final row… I like to change it up sometimes and make them different sizes, so when donating there is a variety!!

  27. AS I am in Australia, I would like to confirm if this is US or UK pattern. Are the DC really our TR? etc. I can convert – just need to know origin of pattern. Thanks for sharing.

  28. Thank you for this beautiful pattern. I too lost a dear friend from breast cancer and will be donating some of the hats made. I have a friend who recently underwent surgery for a brain tumor and was thinking I’d like to make some hats for her in different colors. This fits the bill, perhaps in cotton? Thank you for all the patterns you so freely share with us, it is much appreciated!

  29. I just made this hat in cotton and it came out so beautiful! All my hats go to charity for cancer patients and this is most certainly going to be one of my new “go to” patterns! Thank you so much for your generosity on sharing this.

  30. Could you share what yarn you used in the aqua, green and purple hat. I really love it and am making one for my sister in law who’s dealing with a 2nd bout of cancer.
