Chemo hats

flynflowerFebruary 22, 2009

Hi I was just dX with cancer and will need chemo and it is likely I will be losing the rest of my hair. I've lost a lot of hair already due to massive weight loss. I crochet and knit but am a beginner in knitting. I would like some pretty patterns for hats to wear to church and shopping. Do any of you have any patterns to share>?

I'm not real good, but I want to give it a try at least. I don't want to walk around bald, I'm not that brave.

Hi Everyone, sorry I didn't come back right away, I was too sick and in the hospital getting treatment. I've been trying to crochet a pretty hat, but my eyes are hurting. I have a pattern I love, but I am having trouble with it. I think something must have been left out something in the translation. because it looks more like a dolie than a hat right now. lol. It's real pretty, lacy fan pattern and white for summer, cotton yarn. My email is
thank you for your support and your prayers.
Hugs Patricia

this is the hat I am trying to make , I wish I could get it done. I got as far as the first row of fans and got confused. I'm using Paton's Grace yarn in white . It's 100% mercerized cotton.

But I get so confused with their directions. This hat will be perfect for summer for me. I like the color too.
I think when they translate the norweigian into English something is lost. But I'm trying, just not getting very far.

Here is a link that might be useful: Chemo hat
