Chemo Caps

By

Definition:

A chemo cap is a hat intended for wear by a cancer patient who is losing, or has lost, his or her hair due to chemotherapy treatments.

Chemo caps are popular crochet and knitting projects. Many crocheters and knitters enjoy creating chemo caps for charity.

When crocheting or knitting chemo caps for donation, it is important to choose soft, wearable yarns; avoid using wool yarn, which can irritate sensitive skin. Crafters often choose fun, trendy, colorful, stylish yarns to create their chemo caps.
