This is a chemo cap pattern that I came up with myself last week. Since it's for my mom, I'm calling this one "Patty's Stripes." It's already on it's way to my mom's house.

Materials:
I used three different colors: a slight off white (color A), a beige (color B), and a rust color (color C) that was actually left over from my Doctor Who scarf last year.

For my stripe pattern, I worked this color sequence: A, A, B, C, C, B, A, A, B, C, C, etc.

Any number of colors will work here, but you don't want to use your cheapest yarns for the chemo caps, otherwise they will be itchy. Use something soft.

Crochet hook: H

Directions:
CH 2 (or 3) always counts as 1 DC.

Start this hat with a magic circle of 1 chain and 5 SC. Secure the ends with a slip stitch.

Row 1: Chain 2,  work 11 DC in ring. Secure with a slip stitch, and turn the hat around.
Row 2: Chain 2, work 1 DC in the same stitch. Work 2 DC in each stitch around. Secure with a slip stitch, and turn the hat around.
Row 3: Chain 2, work 2 DC in the same stitch. Alternate 2 DC/1 DC around. Secure with a slip stitch, and turn the hat around.
Row 4: Chain 2, work 2 DC in the same stitch. Alternate 1 DC/1 DC and 1 chain around. Secure with a slip stitch, and turn the hat around.
Row 5: Chain 2, work 2 DC in the same stitch. Alternate 1 DC/1 DC/1 DC and 1 chain around. Work your DC with the chain into the space of the previous row's chains. Secure with a slip stitch, and turn the hat around.
Row 6: Chain 3 and alternate 1 DC/1 DC and 1 chain around. Work your DC with the chain into the space of the previous row's chains. Secure with a slip stitch.
Row 7: Chain 2 and work 1 DC in each stitch around. Secure with a slip stitch, and turn the hat around.
Row 8: repeat row 6
Row 9: repeat row 6
Row 10: repeat row 7
Row 11: repeat row 6
Row 12: repeat row 6
Row 13: repeat row 7
Row 14: repeat row 6
Row 15: repeat row 6
Row 16: Chain 1 and work 1 SC in each stitch across. Fasten off the yarn.

Thank you for sharing this, even during such a stressful time for you and your family. I will try it for my loved one who has started treatment this week.
