June KAL - Chemo Hats!
Posting for Sandy,

June KH Forum KAL - Chemo Hats!

It's time for another monthly knit-along! June crept up on us QUICK!!

This month, we've decided to make charity projects, using soft yarn to create comfy chemo hats!

Chemo hats are used by those that have lost their hair due to chemotherapy or brain surgery. The hats should be made to feel good and not be too hot.

You'll find some guidelines for making the hats, as well as some places to donate your hats on this website:

Yarn ideas:
~Any soft, soft yarn preferably in cotton, cotton blend, bamboo, etc. Wool is not recommended. Even if it's soft to you it may not be soft enough to a sensitive scalp. Yarns like these are good -

Berroco Comfort
Berroco Love It
Caron Simply Soft

I am looking forward to seeing all your beautiful hats!

Shandeh
