Chemo Caps -again

I have enjoyed making the Chemo Caps.   I have found several free patterns.  The latest one I have tried is Millie's Tie Hat.  Clicking that link will take you to the pattern.

I made two of them on Monday.  One will be for my aunt and one for my niece's co-worker.   Here they are:

Notice the ties -that s where you can see the lining!

On my (large) head they are more snug than on the gourd that so graciously acted as a model. When I put it on my head I prefer the way it looks with the "brim" flipped up -like in the bottom picture.  I love these fabrics!

I like this style and of course the fabulous fabrics. You are on a roll with these. Your aunt is going to have quite a selection to choose from.

Beautiful chemo caps, and using the gourd is great. As the old saying goes, Necessity is the mother of invention. Your sharing is a blessing to the receivers.

Lovely fabric choices. My sister did chemo summer before last and we made her caps too. She's doing well-I hope your peeps are gaining on the damn disease too.
