Baby Soft Crochet Chemo Cap
All this talk about soft yarn, one yarn I really like is Bernat’s baby co-ordinates, they have such a fun colour line and it’s a very soft yarn and you can easily substitute it for any of their #3 weight baby yarns.
I made this hat for my friends little girl using bernats baby co-ordinates, she was going through cancer treatment at the hospital near where i live. I went over and dropped off this hat. My friend told me that the bernat baby co-ordinates is a really great yarn because it is soft against the head when they don’t have hair due to treatment.

If you are looking for the pattern in the image above it is available HERE. I added some 1/16″ thick elastic and a white ribbon to the hat as I find with the above pattern and bernat co-ordinates together make a loose hat. Ribbon is sewn together with thread elastic on sewing machine.
My facebook fans have been requesting a crochet chemo cap pattern so I worked one up today, this is attempt #3 to get the right sizing and no puckering. Benat co-ordinates yarn is a great choice too because I believe you could get 3 adult hats from a ball, definitely 2 for sure! There is a FREE baby version HERE
Please donate hats wherever you can..
