Introduction: Chemo Caps for a Friend
A friend was diagnosed with breast cancer and lost her hair after undergoing chemotherapy. I decided to try a variety of hats for her. These are some of them.
Rolled brim rose with stripe hat is knitted using a traditional rolled brim hat, knit in the round with Lion Boucle Rose and stripes created with a bobble stitch in Tutti Fuitti.
Red brimmed hat with turquoise flower. Knitted in 100% cotton using a pattern posted as a shared file on this yahoo group
Blue loopy top hat. Knitted in Pound of Love Denim color. This hat began with this pattern "Slightly Loopy Hat"
and became half knitted and half crocheted, when I didn't like the way the knitted loop stitch was turning out, so I used this tutorial and did the loop part in crochet.
Pink Cable and Rib Hat. Done in Bernat Cottontots in Strawberry color and using a traditional cable and rib hat pattern like these
Blues Ballband Hat, done in Paton's Classic Merino Wool Worn Denim and Denim Marl colors and using a pattern found here
Light Pink hat with flower on brim is knitted top down using Caron Simply Soft yarn in Soft Pink and a pattern found here and called "Pi Topper Chemo Cap"
