Our knitting group donated a TON of chemo/ shelter hats last year.  The local ACMoore is having a Chemohat drive this weekend.  Here's one of my completed hats.  (4 this week!) Here is the pattern I used.

I've already dropped off 2 knitted hats.  The crochet ones do up so much quicker!  I'm temped to just crochet all my future ones!  Let me challenge all of you to donate a hat to your local charity this week!

Again, my apologies for those of you who are frightened by eric carr!  Grin

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

I too have been crocheting hats for our local cancer center, My husband was diagnosed in early December and when his hair came out I started crocheting, he even wears hats when he is in the house because he is so cold, The donations are always really appreciated. I've been lurking here for awhile and this post finally prompted me to jump in and post, Crocheting is about the only thing that I can keep my mind on, and has been very beneficial to me during this time, Thanks to everyone who crochets hats for people who need them and for helping me keep some of my sanity.

Why I didn't think of this...I donate to a local Children's hospital: baby blankets, hats, IV covers, etc.  I never thought to donate to a cancer center.  I definitely will look into that, it's a Great thing to do and feels wonderful doing it  Grin

I accept your challenge! 

Actually, I have been making wool hats for Afghans for Afghans for about a month now, and I am ready to turn them in to my local yarn shop which is making the collection. 

Isn't it great that we can use our talents (and parts of our stashes) to help others?   Grin

Lola, what is your husband's first name?  I try to attach a tag to every one and I'd be honored to name my next "man hat" after him!  I've named most of my adult hats after someone I know or someone someone knows.  It's just my way of remembering why I'm doing it.

Wouldn't that be pretty if they were?! LOL  nope,, just a 3dc shell.

I saw this thread and thought I'd share my favorite free hat pattern...

http://angelscrochet.com/patterns/gsquarepat.php

What yarn do you use when making the cap for chemo patients? I was using Red Heart for myself, but i think that would be too rough for a shorn or balding head.

Thanks,
-Nikki

of course Caron SS is great, soft, machine washable, etc.  But I would say anything that has the above qualities is nice.  I use whatever is in my stash!  That blue stuff I used on that hat is some phentex junk I got at a yard sale.  It has lycra in it!
