Quickie Chemo Cap Free Crochet Pattern


On one of my Yahoo groups Bev's-Charity-Challange we were asked to make just one hat on Christmas day. Since I was over at my son's apartment I didn't have a lot of yarn with me except what I was using for a couple blankets, this is what I came up with. It's a really simple chemo hat, very soft and, at least I think it is, very pretty. I made it in less than an hour and I'm going to give you the almost-a-pattern pattern. It's just too simple to call a pattern. I used a varigated yarn and somehow it just striped perfectly. I tried to do it again, same yarn, same hook, same pattern and it wouldn't do it.
Quickie Chemo Cap
You need to use a super bulky yarn such as Red Heart Baby Clouds or Light and Lofty. I used a size N hook. I do crochet rather loosely so you may need to make adjustments, also I have two N hooks that are totally different in size so yours may not give the same size hat. The one I made will fit an adult woman.
Ch 4 and join to form loop
Round 1: ch 3 (counts as dc) 15 dc in loop and join (16 st)
Rd 2: Ch 3 dc in same st 2 dc in each st till end and join (32 st)
Rds 3 - 8: Ch3 dc in each dc and join
Rd 9: Ch 1 sc in each dc
See how easy? If you want to make chemo hats and have some suitable yarn it doesn't get any easier or quicker than this.

Very nice and simple pattern. I'm using it with another yarn, and while it will take a bit longer, its easy and looks good. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for this great pattern. I am working on chemo caps for the oncologist office that cured my husband's cancer. To spice up the caps I crochet a flower to attach to the cap.

I made my first Quickie Chemo Cap in no time at all. Wow, what an easy pattern! I'm just a beginner, so if I can make this hat, anyone can. Thanks for the pattern. I can't wait to give it to my friend.

I want to make this for a friend of mine that has breast cancer. I'm gonna do her's in pink. I'm gonna use the same yarn. I was just wondering how many can you get out of one skein? It seems pretty simple.

It's been a pretty long time but I seem to remember getting 2 or 3 out of a skein.

Thank you so much for this pattern. I am a 13 year survivor and I showed my breast cancer support group how to make this hat at our last meeting. Now, we are going to give other women going through what we did a cap to lift their spirits. What a great little cap. Again, Thank You
