    Need pattern for Chemo patient

    Hello fellow quilters,
    I really need help finding a pattern for a cap/turban/hat????????
    My best friend is dealing with breast cancer and is having a hard time with her hair loss.
    We also found out a couple of weeks ago another very dear friend of ours has stage 3 uterine cancer.
    I would really like to make them something nice and comfortable.
    Please, if you can help PM me!

    I crocheted several hats using the soft yarns for my mom when she was undergoing chemo for her lung cancer...I just googled crochet patterns for hats for cancer patients, and brought up a bunch of different patterns...most free...I am thinking you could do the same thing only for sewn patterns...here are a couple of links I found:

    Sending warm thoughts and well wishes to your friends,

    PS My mom is coming up on her 9th year of remission from lung cancer, she only has 1 lung, and is on oxygen full time, but she is a miracle!!!

    Thank you very much! I am happy to hear about your Mom's 9 yr survival. Hope my dear friends are as lucky as your Mom and family has been.
    Thanks again, Penny

    I've made both of the above patterns.......they're both fairly easy and quick to do.
