Finally got the picture off the camera to post.

The chemo cap is for one of the women in my company's Montreal, Quebec office.

Made from one skein of Berroco Chinchilla which is very, very soft.

Simple improvised pattern:
16 inch Size 7 Circular Addi Turbo Needles
Cast-on 80 stitches using Cable Cast-On.
Place stitch marker
Join (without twisting work) and knit in stockinette
Knit until piece is 5 inches wide
Then start decreasing (you may need to switch to Dbl. pointed needles as the circle gets smaller)

1st - k8, k2tog, repeat to end of row
2nd - knit around
3rd - k7, k2tog, repeat to end of row

Very very nice. I knit

Very very nice. I knit several berets in a soft yarn for a friend when she was having chemo...it made me feel so good that they comforted her after a grueling day. Sometimes, they were the only head covering she could tolerate and soothed her enough that she could sleep. Bless her. Blessings to you, too, for your caring gift. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

I've been wanting to do some charity knitting, newborn caps, etc. Think I'm going to add this to the list of projects as well. Thanks for sharing.!

Peace,

I love the texture- so plush and appealing- and the blue is really sumptuous.

Very nice. It looks like it

Very nice. It looks like it would be very comfortable and not as much bother as a wig and stylish too.
