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.

Pattern originally designed for the 20 Hats Project drive organized by the Bull City Fiber Loft in Durham, North Carolina. Proceeds from the sale of this pattern benefit the NC Cancer Hospital.
