What was your inspiration?
Designing a cute and comfortable cap for women undergoing cancer treatments, including chemotherapy.
What are you most proud of?
I created this pattern to knit up quickly, and to allow some adjustment in the circumference of the cap, which can accommodate an abundance or lack of hair.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This cap is knitted in the round. The pattern is written for double pointed needles, but there are alternatives out there if you don't like DPNs.
