I have read that it is VERY important to only use cotton yarn when making hats for cancer patients. No acrylic, silk or wool.

I made many of these hats in various colors for myself last winter while going thru chemo. I added a scalloped edge to some and flowers to others. I even made an edging that I could weave a ribbon through and make a bow. My grandaughters ( 8 and 4) both asked for hats to go with their coats. They can be made in an afternoon.

365 and GumyWhite, while I have not completed this garment, nor read the pattern itself... from what you have posted this is what I would do: 1st time around stitch 54 (after the 6 sc increases), 2nd time around stitch 54 (with no increases), 3rd time around stitch 60 (after the 6 sc increases), 4th time around stitch 60 (with no increases), 5th time around stitch 66 (after 6 sc increases), 6th time around stitch 66 (wit no increase), and 7th time around stitch 72 stitches (after 6 sc increases). Hope that helps! Please note again, I cant proclaim to be right or wrong... just sharing how I would interpret the intructions you've posted. Happy stitching!

I too am lost on the Chemo Cap, same round as GumyWhite in Texas. I understand the 2sc in next sc, 1sc in each of next 9, 6times but where it looses me is on the cont in same manner, inc 6 sts on every following alt rnd to 72sts. The part I am having a hard time with is the "follwoing alt rnd". To me alternate means every other round but what am i doing on the none alternate round? I know I am missing something or making this harder then needs be but I can not for the life of me come up with what I am suppose to do. If you could explain to me in "Crochet for dummies" terms I would greatly appreciate it. I have made afghans and booties in the past but this one has me stumped. Thank You so much for the help. 365

I'm lost on the Chemo Cap and need some help with this statement...Next rnd: Ch 1. [2 sc in next sc. 1 sc in each of next 7 (9) sc] 6 times. Join with sl st to first sc. 54 (66) sts. Cont in same manner, inc 6 sts on every following alt rnd to 60 (72) sts. Place marker at end of rnd. Please help - I need to make 50 for my church to give to MD Anderson Cancer Hospital in Houston, Texas Thank you!

I love this hat for the women surviving cancer and all but am I overly empathizing when I say 'I feel the person wearing this would really feel 'more normal and private' if whoever made it 'sews' in side hairs hanging out a bit a bit at the nape of the neck and either bangs or a few hairs at the topfront. Synthetic hairs like from wigs. Either way, they have my total support. Carol S
