Crochet Summer Chemo Cap Pattern

 

Welcome to the first installment of my Crochet for Cancer series, be sure to check out my other post. To create this summer crochet chemo cap I wanted a lightweight yarn and I love how the Berroco worked up. It’s cotton so it’s breathable without being see through. Which also means it’s not itchy on sensitive scalps. Berroco Modern Cotton DK has a gorgeous sheen and comes in a variety of color choices. I chose a neutral color and added a simple diamond pattern for a little detail.



Materials:

Berroco Modern Cotton DK (Color A) Chepstow & (Color B) Point Judith

C hook

yarn needle & scissors



Gauge:

5 DC X 3 rows = 1″



Hat Measurements:

Circumference: 20-21″

Height: 8 1/8″




Pattern Notes:

MC =magic circle

DC = yarn over & insert hook into stitch, yarn over again and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over again & pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yarn over again and pull through last 2 loops on hook.

HDC = yarn & insert hook into stitch, yarn over again and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over again & pull through all 3 loops on hook.

Slip Stitch

2 DC = crochet two double crochets into the same stitch

DC 2 = crochet one double crochet into each of the next two stitches
