Might want to find out what size Mason's Mom's head is - I was knitting adult medium caps for a friend who wound up needing a much smaller size and wound up redoing them.
In my research, I found that very soft yarn with no wool is recommended. Something like Chinchilla or a cotton chenille. They need to be washable, too.

Hobby lobby sells Sweet Bee Sweet Delight Baby. This is a VERY soft acrylic yarn. I have some left over from a sweater project. I figured this would work since its a baby yarn and found it with the other baby yarns.

The hat I'm working on in one of my own designs and has some yarn overs to give it a little bit of laciness.

I asked Mason about this, and here was his response:

I'd say medium. The last hat I made for her, my skull cap design, was 80 cast on worsted weight stitches on size 8 needles and it fit perfectly.

Hey folks...if someone isn't comfortable making a hat, I thought that maybe they could make some sort of spa cloth of something...maybe something to put an ice or heat pack on for nausea?

I wouldn't want anyone to feel left out...if they wanted to help but don't like or can't make hats.

Whatcha think?

Oh, and I'm thinking that we should aim for June 30th...to get the items to me. Then I'll photograph everything and put the package together.

Thoughts? Too soon?

I think I can get at least 1 hat done by June 30th. I am going back to school and starting on June 16th, but there's a good month to get something done before I start school.

Hey Ya'll!

I'd completely love to help. Theres this really fantastic chemo cap pattern that i found (will post the link later, my computer is having issues ) that I have been looking for the perfect cause to knit for The only problem is that the only fiber that I have right now that might be suitable is %100 cotton and the caron simply soft acrylic. Would these work?

Thank you sooo much auburnchick for setting this up!! What a great project

Love,
Lexie

Hi Lexie! I think that the Simply Soft would be PERFECT! That yarn is simply luscious...a very nice acrylic. Plus, it's machine washable. The last thing a chemo patient needs to worry about is washing instructions.

Thanks for coming on board!

I am thrilled that we've got more people joining up.

When y'all are ready for my address, I will PM it to you, individually.

Oh, and his mom's name is Jean, in case you want to send along a card.

This is a wonderful group of people! We truly are making a difference in the world, one project at a time. I count myself blessed to be among you.
