First developed as a chemo cap and designed to show off a highly variegated, wildly colored yarn, or one that is subtly spectacular; this simple, soft hat is available in two sizes to fit an average adult head. A quick-to-knit cap meant to be a bit slouchy and drapey with enough room to be gentle on sensitive scalps, or accommodate a thick head of hair.

Please consider a contribution (yarn or services or whatever suits you) to The Magic Yarn Project, a non-profit organization that makes glorious yarn princess wigs and/or superhero caps for children undergoing chemo and whose scalps are too sensitive for traditional wigs.

I’m very grateful to my professional tech editor Madeleine Susan for her stellar, prompt, and patience assistance, as well as to my volunteer test knitters, Denisedetejas, williekays, and toshi who totally rock and catch all the bits and bobs we’ve miss.

Please note: I make every effort to publish clean, grammatically correct, and error free patterns. I’m human, and make mistakes. Please let me know by PM if you find one, and/or if you have questions or need assistance, and I’ll do my very best to support you to successful completion.
