This is my second design of a series of Crochet for Cancer chemo caps that I’ll be designing for a cause called Crochet for Cancer, Inc.
This Crochet for Cancer Childs Chemo Cap Pattern: Beloved, was designed for the purpose of giving crocheters a basic and stylish chemo cap to crochet and donate to cancer patients. This is a unisex design so it can be made for boys and girls.
To find out how and where to donate Crochet Chemo Caps to Crochet for Cancer go to their Chemo Cap Donate Page. You can also find the guidelines for donations on this page.
You may even like to consider forming your own Chapter in your local area. For more information go to Form a Chapter.
If you have any other queries that you can’t find answers to on their website you can contact the Co-Founder, Tracy Wells, through the Contact Page.
Crochet for Cancer would like to add a scripture reference for this chemo cap:
3 John 1:2 (NKJV)
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
