Men's Chemo cap patterns?
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.

Thanks!

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.

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

I just finished a pismo hat tonight and it took me FOREVAH!!! 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 from knitty in a manly color??
