I was asked to write a pattern for a chemo hat for a very special lady. She loves the 1940’s vintage turban look …….

So …… I made her this ~ I really wanted to brighten up her life a little by making something special - just for her.

DK (8ply) yarn
4mm needles

If you are going to knit this as a chemo hat – please use a soft yarn (inexpensive acrylics are just not suitable for this ……) – maybe spend a little more money than you usually would – it is a very special gift after all. Cotton is great for the summer, maybe cashmere for the winter …….

If you like the hat and want to knit one for yourself – then of course any DK yarn will be fine!

I knitted the smaller size – heads with no hair are smaller than the average head. If you are knitting this for someone with lots of hair – then I suggest you measure the head – and chose the size that will fit best.

I really hope that Vikki will enjoy her hat, and that there will be happier times ahead…….
