Our Colorado Chapter of Sewing and Design Professionals is among the groups and individuals who regularly devote time to making chemo hats. There are many excellent resources, but, sadly, some of these other hats and scarves have instructions that are confusing. Joellyn Keranen and I have worked to refine, expand, and produce clearly written instructions with good photos and illustrations. If you know of a pattern that could benefit, please email me. These are free for copying and distribution, as long as not for profit. If you wish to publish ours, please contact me.
I do not make hats for chemo patients for sale, but if supplied with more fabric than necessary (to my Denver studio) will make up a batch and donate the surplus to the recipient’s support group and/or the American Cancer Society. Email me.
