how to crochet, free crochet patterns, hats, beanies, chemo caps, bald heads, alopecia,


SLEEPY Hat is soft and comfortable 
and keeps your head warm throughout the night.
A lovely lightweight cotton hat 
which adds enough warmth for a comfortable night's sleep.
  
Designed for people with hair loss due to cancer, 
chemotherapy, alopecia and other medical conditions,
naturally bald heads and sinus sufferers.

SLEEPY Hat keeps you cozy at night any time of year!


SLEEPY Hat Crochet pattern is one of my spur-of-the-moment creations when I needed something to keep my head warm whilst sleeping.  You can laugh, I am dead serious, I sleep in crochet hats. For many years I have suffered with sinusitis, and in 1998 I decided to wear a beanie to bed to keep my forehead warm, and I have not looked back since, I can sleep comfortably protected from the cold air moving across my forehead and aggravating my sinuses and waking me up.


Best Sleep Hats



It's now time to replace my old collection of crochet sleep hats, most of them are years old and have been beaten up by the numerous times they have been washed in the machine. So as I am crocheting new sleep hats I decided to share them with you too.  All are made using a DK or 8ply natural fibre yarn, such as cotton, bamboo or pure merino wool, and the designs are simple and quick to make and of course I love adding colour to make it more fun!


FREE CROCHET HAT PATTERNS


I have decided to share the crochet sleep hat patterns with you for FREE, and over the next few weeks, you will be able to crochet them too. These crochet sleep hats are all made using a soft cotton yarn, I will be using mainly Bendigo Woollen Mills (BWM) Cotton 8ply which is an Australian yarn, if you wish to substitute the yarn, remember to check the website YARNSUB to get the best match.



So, without further ado here is our first crochet sleep hat.
