FO: Summer chemo hat
Several KHers advised me on what to knit for a friend's daughter who is undergoing chemo for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Thank you again, all of you! This is the cable rib hat from the spring issue of knit1 magazine, using Rowan Calmer in coral, which is amazingly soft yarn.

She's wearing it over a wig, so it's snug. Of course, it fits better sans wig, and that's the measurement I used to make it, but no photo. Reportedly, she loves it.

The top two photos are the hat upon my big head. They're posted simply to show the hat from all angles.

Thank you!
There's no link to the pattern; it's in the spring '07 issue of knit1 magazine.
