Did you know that when a child looses their hair while battling cancer, wigs might not be an option? Scalp sensitivity from medications and allergies can mean that traditional wigs won’t work for a lot of kids. By partnering with the Daytona Dream Center and a Childhood Cancer Foundation, Knots of Love aims to provide handmade wigs, masks and hats made from the softest yarn. Each cap and mask has been designed with a simple beanie style base making it very comfortable to wear, even for the most sensitive skin.
We are calling on all knitters and crocheters to help us reach children in need and make their gift one to remember with a one-of-a-kind handmade hat. If you are interested in contributing please follow the instructions below to make you hat. Once complete, you can mail your finished wig, mask or hat to the Daytona Dream Center using the address below.

All of the hat patterns listed below are a child small size. This is the most requested size and while we do offer other sizes, they are by request only. Each hat child size small hat should measure approximately 7” wide x 6.5” in height (masks will be slightly longer)
Using characters that kids know and love instantly adds an element of play and dress-up to our yarn wigs and masks. Keeping the final hat light-weight and breathable is very important so they can be worn all day, if needed. Other styles and or colors can be requested here.
Using approved yarns is a must when creating your wigs, masks and hats. All of the Knots of Love by The Roving Nomad patterns have been created with Red Heart Soft. This yarn is 100% acrylic and comes it a large variety of colors. You can purchase your Red Heart Soft yarn in most craft stores or online.
Knots of Love patterns are available for free from The Roving Nomad.
