Chemo hats

Posted by flynflower (My Page) on

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.

RE: Chemo hats

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 flynflower@triad.rr.com
thank you for your support and your prayers.
Hugs Patricia

here is the pattern I used

http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=108&d_id=26&lang=us

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.

I love this pattern too

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

Would you like me to crochet the hat for you?? I looked at it and would not have a problem with it at all. You can contact me at mama40@gmail.com. I would be happy to help and make several if you like this hat. Let me know, it would be my pleasure..
