Basic Chemo Hat/cap
Does anyone know of a good simple knitted (crochet ok too) chemo cap. I have a friend who is under going chemo and may loose her hair. Although she bought a wig, I thought a cute colorful cap for night wear would be nice. Sort of a night cap. She is cold natured anyway. And if she doesn't loose her hair, she can wear it or do what ever she wants with it.

Hi Knittylou

There's patterns for chemo hats at: www.chemocaps.com

There's also a site called www.hatswithhair.com - it's exactly that - there's a variety of hats that have hair attached to the base to give the same natural appearance of hair peeking out from underneath. They're based in Tampa FL.

All Best Wishes to you and your friend.

I really like the Halfdome hat on the new knitty (www.knitty.com) issue. I'm making one for my brother who lives in Australia is suffering in winter and is balding =P

The only thing I would say is that the biggest size takes over 1 skein of the main colour - his calculations appear quite far off on the big size!
