First, I am SO sorry to hear

First, I am SO sorry to hear about your neice! I hope she is able to win her battle against this formidable foe.
How old is she? I bought a great beanie pattern from SweaterBabe for an adult. It was actually one of the first things I made (in every color!) and it was unbelieavably easy. I'll happily scan it and sent it to you if you'd like to see it. I cannot remember how much Sweater Babe charged, but I also noted that she had a child's version of the same.
Let me know where to send the pattern if that is your wish.

Hi: I've never made one but


I've never made one but there are patterns on Ravelry for "cancer caps" like this one:

I believe it is free. And you can totally change it up because it is a pretty straight forward pattern.

Great idea to make your neice something pretty as she goes through her treatment. You're a great uncle.
