Chemo Cap #1

At work we started a knitting group called Knotty Knitters.  We knit together during our lunch hour a few times a week.  We have been talking about knitting for charity.  I came up with making Chemo Caps.  Here is my first one:

We are currently collecting chemo caps for Shriner's Children's Hospital in Springfield, MA from now until June 30th.  We will be picking a new place to donate them every quarter.  Next quarter will be donating them to the D'Amour Center for Cancer Care through Baystate Medical Center for breast cancer awareness month.  I cannot wait to see how successful this will be, I will keep you posted!!!

Pattern: Knit One Chemo Cap
Yarn: Lily's Sugar N' Cream #21317 - Violet Stripes
Needles: US 9


  1. Cute hat Di! And I love the cause too :-) I wish you tons of success with it! :)

  2. What a wonderful project Diane. Your chemo hat will be appreciated by the recipient. TFS your project.
