This pattern is named for the shadow of cancer that affects the lives of so many. Cancer patients and their loved ones alike can feel like they are helpless and hopeless in their situations. We offer this hat pattern as a small token of comfort and a concrete action that can be taken- perhaps a knitting project will take your mind off of unpleasantries in your life, whether that means cancer or any other type of illness or grief. We hope the sun will shine again for you soon.
