Crocheting a mesh chemo cap is fast and easy. The lightweight design is wonderful for warmer weather. Lion Brand Coboo Yarn is so nice to use for this design. The free crochet pattern is found below, but if you would like an ad free pdf, they can be found on ETSY or RAVELRY.
I sometimes use affiliate links in my posts. This won’t cost you anything, but will help offset the cost of yarn and other supplies needed, so that I can continue bringing you crochet patterns and craft ideas. Thank you so much for your support.
Please use this free crochet pattern to make chemo caps for a local cancer center near you.
I have been a patient at our local cancer center. They mentioned, when I asked, that a mesh chemo cap would be good for the warmer months.
The Cancer Center told me there is a need for chemo caps, for the guys as well.
I immediately thought, “I can make chemo caps for men. So far I have designed 2 unisex chemo caps That men can wear. The first is the Simple Chemo Cap. Second is the Peekaboo Ridge Chemo Cap. They both use Lion Brand Coobo Yarn. It is a lovely yarn. I believe it is the right texture for tender skin.
There are a few other chemo cap designs on this blog. I would love it if you would visit them and use those crochet patterns too.
