My husband and I have moved homes many times in our relationship. It’s hard to make good friends and then leave them, but I would never give up the relationships I have made in all the places we have lived in exchange for staying on one place. Something that I have learned over the years is that there are good people EVERYWHERE. Although our recent move didn’t take us far, it still put us out of touch, and I was saddened to hear a wonderful, charitable and loving woman from our previous area was fighting cancer. A mutual friend commissioned a turban hat for her and this Simple Turban pattern by Hopeful Honey turned out to be perfect. Even thought the pattern isn’t specifically a turban chemo cap, I think it works wonderfully.
If you aren’t following Olivia’s blog Hopeful Honey, you should be! She has gorgeous patterns, and I absolutely love her style. Olivia’s Basic Turban was incredibly easy to make, and I think it would be so cute for a baby too.
I stressed very much about which yarn to use. I wanted to make sure that it was absolutely something she could wear if she wanted to. I found THIS resource very helpful. You want to make sure your yarn is VERY SOFT. I know it’s tempting to use some Red Heart Super Saver from your stash, but the hat won’t be usable to the recipient, so be sure to choose soft and squishy yarn for your chemo cap project. I chose Caron Simply Soft (found on the list), and I think it will be comfortable for her to wear.
