This is my first 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 Ladies Chemo Cap Pattern: Wings like Eagles, was designed for the purpose of giving crocheters a basic and stylish chemo cap to crochet and donate to cancer patients.
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:
Wings Like Eagles
Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)
“But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.”
1 ball of Red Heart With Love Yarn, Color: Bubble Gum (medium worsted weight category 4)
2 x buttons
Adult Ladie Size – 19 inches/48 cm – Please take note that the crochet chemo cap will stretch another 1-1.5 inches/3-4cms once placed on the head. For a larger size you can use a larger size crochet hook.

Notes: This pattern is worked in continuous rounds which means that there is no joining at the end of each round. Place a stitch marker into the 1st stitch made on each round.

Rnd 1: 8 sc into the center of the ring. (8 sts)
