  1. Are there any patterns for crocheted chemo caps? If so may print off one or two of them.. I crochet more than knit, therefore it would be faster for me.

    • Hi Jeanette.

      We’re in the process of revising and updating the http://www.chemocaps.com website and will be adding crochet chemocap patterns very soon.
      Here on: http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/patterns.htm
      you will see assorted crochet chemocap patterns that are complimentary to print out and use and all of the patterns on chemocaps.com website are complimentary as well.

      It’s wonderful that you want to participate in this program crocheting chemocaps for cancer patients and on behalf of every cancer patient who will be the recepient of one of your crochet chemocaps, I thank you.

  2. would like complete directions for the floppy brim hat…can’t seem to get them totally on the page…. please send it to my e-mail..thanks…

    • Hi John

      Thanks for writing me. If you go back into the “Patterns” Link and scroll down you will see the floppy brim cap pattern listed twice. Due to a computer glitch the pattern is listed twice. The first link is incomplete and we will have it removed but if you just look right under the first link, you will see the pattern listed again and that is complete.

      As part of this program all we ask is that you
      Please put a little tag on each chemocap that says:

      ” Heather Spoll No Hair Day Hat Program”
      www,chemocaps.com
      knit for you by (your first name or name of knitting group)

      This tag lets staff and patients know about the program and that it is a “real” program.
      This program is well known by oncology staff in cancer treatment centers.

      On behalf of every cancer patient who will be the recepient of one of your hand knit chemocaps, I say Thank You. You are making a real difference in the lives of cancer patients and your a wonderful person for participating. Give yourself a big pat on the back
      you deserve it.

  3. Thank you so much for these patterns, I am knitting chemo hats for the local hospitls, it is the start of summer here in Australia and I hope to get as many knitted as I can ready for winter.
    I had breast cancer and had chemo and know how important it is to have nice hats when all the hair has gone.
    Thanks
    Nola Musitano

    • Hi Nola

      I am so glad to hear that you have recovered from breast cancer and that your doing so well. Of course having gone through chemo you know how comfortable handknit chemocaps are to have and I thank you for participating in this program. I am sure that all the patients who are the recepients of your knitted chemocaps feel a little bit better and a little more loved because of you.

  4. Is there any reason I can’t start knitting at the edge of the brim and then do appropriate number of decreases up to the top of the hat? It seems easier than picking up stitches for the brim. Or does the cast-on edge give a tighter fit around the head?

    Thanks.

  5. My young daughters got knitting looms for Christmas and were wondering if they can use these to create Chemocaps? They are age 9 and 11 and love their looms and want to make tons! This is a great way for them to keep busy without electronics and also fill their family required service hours. :)

    • Hi Julie
      I think this is wonderful that your daughters received these looms for christmas. A wonderful beginning into the world of knitting. I personally have never used a knitting loom and have no idea if you can create something round such as a cap with a loom. I was under the impression that looms are used to knit scarves and shawls that are flat. I am sure there are tutorials on youtube.com and also if you do a google search – you might find a way to create something round like a cap.

      Please let me know what you find out and how it goes…….
      Ronni
