Chemo Cap with Curls in Progress

Chemo Cap with Curls

I did make some progress on the Chemo Cap and I should be finished with it today.  My plan is to give it to her tomorrow.  I know the chemo is taking a toll on her energy and how well she feels, so if she doesn’t feel up to coming to Church tomorrow, I will take it to her.

The red didn’t poke through quite enough, the black is a bit longer and covers the red up a lot, but some of it pokes through here and there.  Not quite what I had imagined, but still very soft and should go with her shawl.  I’m almost to the 5 1/2 inches it calls for before starting the crown, but I am debating making it a couple of inches longer so the bottom will fold up like a cuff similar to the picture, so unless the crown takes more rows than I think it does, I will need to add a couple of inches before I start the crown.  If all else fails read the instructions, so I think I will go do that and make a decision.  I was told I should make the hat small because the hair loss makes your head smaller, but I’m wondering if this is going to be large enough.  If not I will make her another one, and will have gained some knowledge about how large a chemo hat needs to be.  It’s all about learning right?
