Pattern Description:

The Beehive Cap meets all of the standard criteria for hospital chemo caps, plus it is a fun and quick knit appropriate to a wide range of yarns and heads.

Hospitals have a continuing need for hats for newborns and cancer patients of all ages. In general, these hats should:

- Be made of natural materials.
- Be machine wash- and dryer-safe.
- Include a brim or other shaping to distract from the lack of hair.
- Be soft and beautiful.

Hat is sized for baby (14in/35cm circumference), toddler, child, adult s, adult m, adult l. Each size is approximately 2in/5cm larger in circumference and 1in/2.5cm taller. This hat is designed to fit loosely on the head; please choose a size smaller than normal if you desire a snug fitting hat.

This pattern is for personal and charity use only.


20 stitches and 30 rows = 4 inches in stockinette (in the round)
