Cotton Crochet Chemo Cap Pattern

Spring is here… or coming soon. Either way, this cotton chemo cap will be useful for those who need it in warmer climates.

I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton in Woods Print which adds a bit of interest to a very simple design. Their color selection on cottons is vast, so hard to decide.

I chose a half double crochet stitch since it offers lots of coverage, but it’s also stretchier than the single crochet. An easy, beginner stitch, that’s so rhythmic to work.

I know my cancer fighter likes a classic, simple look so that’s how I kept this one. These basic hats are so easy to jazz up with stripes, buttons or fancier edges if you want.

Worked top down this beanie is easy to adjust to your needed size. And it’s a totally beginner crochet beanie pattern.

Materials

Gauge

8 hdc x 6 rows = 2″ x 2″

Pattern

For adult sizes increase your flat circle to 7.25″-8, depending on individual head size. Continue the increase pattern if you need a larger size, likewise you can crochet fewer increase rounds to make a smaller hat.

Start with a magic circle.

1. Hdc 8 into the mc, to join ss to first hdc of the round. (8)

2. Ch 2, 2hdc in the same stitch and in each stitch around, ss to first st to join. (16)

3. Ch 2, hdc in the same stitch, *{2hdc in the next stitch, hdc in the next stitch} repeat from * around, ss to first st to join. (24)

4. Ch 2, hdc in the same stitch and in the next stitch, *{2hdc in the next stitch, 1hdc in each of the next two stitches} repeat from * around, ss to first to join. (32)

5. Ch 2, hdc in the same stitch and in the next two stitches, *{2hdc in the next stitch, 1hdc in each of the next three stitches} repeat from * around, ss to join. (40)

6. Ch 2, hdc in the same stitch and in the next three stitches, *{2hdc in the next stitch, 1 hdc in each of the next four stitches} repeat from * around, ss to join. (48)

7. Ch 2, hdc in the same stitch and in the next four stitches, *{2hdc in the next stitch, 1hdc in each of the next five stitches} repeat from* around, ss to join. (56)

8. Ch 2, hdc in the same stitch and in the next five stitches, *{2hdc in the next stitch, 1hdc in each of the next six stitches} repeat from * around, ss to join. (64)

Repeat

9-23. Ch 2, hdc in the same stitch and in each stitch around. (64)

I finished mine with a simple sc round. But this would be lovely with a shell stitch around the edge, something like what I used in my pink & white SweetHeart Hat.

24. Ch 1, sc in the same and in each stitch around, ss to 1st stitch to join.

Cut your yarn and weave in your ends with the yarn needle.

Happy crocheting and let me know if you have any questions!
