Chemo Caps Made and Donated 425 Lap Robes Made and Donated 21


Guidelines for Caps and Lap Robes

  1. Purpose: Provide free knitted, crocheted, fleece/soft fabric hats for those who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, brain surgery, burn wounds, etc.
  2. Criteria for the hats:
    • Must be hand made
    • Must be new
    • Preferably washable
    • Smoke-free & pet-hair-free
    • Wool is ok but not preferred because of allergies
    • Any regular pattern can be used 
  3. Ideas:
    • Softer yarns (such as cotton) are more comfortable.
    • Lion Brand MICRO-SPUN yarn is a very soft yarn (and is 100% Acrylic and Machine Washable & Dryable).
    • The new fun fur yarns are fun, soft and lightweight
    • Thinner, seamless, non-lumpy caps are good for sleeping and increased comfort.
    • Hats made with thinner yarn would be better for summer weather use.
    • Cotton is great for summer hats and warmer climates as it is cooler than most other types of yarn.
