Cancer caps pattern–Cozy Caps?

Miss._Miss | Posted in The Archives on

*
I am looking for any patterns–preferably FREE–:D for patterns for caps that chemotherapy patients wear. Seems like there are at least two floating around–one is a turban & seems like it’s called Cozy Cap. The other is a soft-brimmed unisex hat/ca & I don’t know what it’s called. Any help you can give would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Go to http://www.sewing.org/careshare/index.html and you will find patterns there for Comfort cap, and the chemo turban.

      *I have been making chemo hats for a pal since spring. 1- you don't need a pattern2- those hats with little brims are depressing looking and make people look sicker and patheticA hat is essentially a tube attached to a round or oval crown. Because the hat will be put on bare skin, it should be lined so it will be smooth and comfortable. Folks with cancer are sick . Their color is often bad - yellowish or grey. Choose colors that will flatter. Hair frames a face - add height and interest. Buttons, additional fabric, tassels all add interest.Hair crowns a head. Your hat should do the same. A Chemo hat should be fun and grand. Some of my hats have worked so well that the security guard at the cancer hospital told my pal to stay bald even after chemo. I will be happy to talk specifics about construction. Cancer Care gave my friend several horribly depressing hats. Thy look like an announcement to the world "I am dying". I feel that cancer hats should say "I'm not going to let this sucker get me down". So much of recovery is one's emotional state. That's why i feel the hats have to be positive and outrageous . You don't have to go quiet

        *Sarah, it sure sounds like you've got the right approach. Could you describe some of the finished results: what colors did you find that flatter chemo patients; what fabrics, what shapes of hats, etc.?
