I just finished the 24 chemo hat this morning. My cousins wife is a nurse at a Des Moines hospital and asked me to make some chemo hats to be donated there. I love the look of the turban hats so crocheted 24 of them. I made my own pattern after looking at several pictures. I used Simply Soft yarn and 4 ply baby yarn to keep the hats soft.

Here are 59 hats Frank loom knitted. He has to quit working with yarn as he has developed a bad rash on both hands and arms and onto his face. We are pretty sure it is caused from the dye in yarn. He is seeing a dermatologist and is using meds. for the itching and blistering. He has stopped using the yarn for several days now and his face has cleared up and his hands are showing improvement. He is so unhappy he has to stop making hats. He loves to help children and the homeless keeping them warm in the winter. Right now I got him some adult coloring books and that helps him pass the time.
