I recently completed five weeks of radiation therapy at Moffitt cancer center in Tampa, Florida. I was very lucky because radiation doesn't make your hair fall out unless it's in your brain. But chemo ravages those valiant fighters hair. Please think about making some more fancy caps and donating at Moffitt. Embroider the word courage on a few too!

Not only cancer patients have to deal with chemo and its effects - there are those who fight with the after effects of chemo in their battles with other diseases. Thank you for this pattern on behalf of them I shall knit a few of these in wild and funky colours to remind them that they can overcome, they will regain strength and mobility and Yes their hair will grow back albeit curly

Will make cancer patients feel loved and cared for during their ordeal. THANKS!!!!! Liz

Nice combination of rib and lace. Thanks! Linda

Please post insructions for knitting this hat in other yarn weights. I have organic cotton yarn that knits up at 4" over 22 stitches on size (US) 6 needles. I'd LOVE to try this hat in that yarn. Thanks!

@ bascls 8690103: This pattern is knit in 6 repeating lace panels. If you would like to make the hat smaller, you might try knitting less than 6 panels. Good Luck! -- AllFreeKnitting Editor
