View Full Version : Men's Chemo cap patterns?

10-09-2005, 09:26 PM
I've been looking through the hats on knittingpatterncentral, but Im not finding anything I really like....

DH's work friend was diagnosed with brain & lung cancer...he's just starting to lose his hair.

Has anyone seen a pattern that a fashion-conscious man might like? Needs to be knit in the round...no irritating seams.

I thought FOR SURE that one of our guys would point me in the direction of their favorite MANHAT pattern! :(

I think we have all the same pattern links. What about a regular hat-hat? Men aren't as particular as women about baldness and fashion.

Yeah, I guess you're right....although, this guy is pretty fashion-conscious.

Whats a HAT-HAT?? :roflhard:

:roflhard: You know--rib a few rows, knit a few inches, dec, bind off. Add a manly stripe if you want. Some camo, maybe.

I had considered Pismo, but its TINY yarn on TINY needles ALL in k1p1 rib! Im not sure Id have the patience!

I finally found a pattern in a book that my LYS let me BORROW! Link to the pattern pic and pics of the YUMMY yarn are in my blog thread!

I just finished a pismo hat tonight and it took me FOREVAH!!! :shock: Seriously, off/on for a few months, in between other projects. And right at the end I couldn't take it anymore so I started decreasing every 3 rows instead of every 4 rows, and fastened it all off when I still had 30 stitches remaining. So now it's got a big (well, 1/4" probably but it looks big) hole in the top. It is VEEEERY CUTE though and if I don't feel like wearing it myself I'm sure my son will love it.

What about the coronet hat (www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/PATTcoronet.html)from knitty in a manly color??
