Chemo Caps

I just found out that the adult daughter of a friend of mine will be undergoing chemotherapy and will likely lose her hair. Many knitters have been making chemo caps for years and donating them to hospitals. I decided to do some online hunting for patterns and advice. Generally, caps need to be made smaller because of the lack of hair and yarn should be the softest available. Any pattern can be adapted and we've listed some sites with patterns on the sidebar. Patterns range from the "Classic" chemo cap to Wiggies, toques, turbans, skull caps, and Rasta caps. So... in your spare time consider making chemo caps for your local hospital or dear friend.

Check out the sidebar for a listing of free on-line chemo cap patterns (including the Wiggie).
