22 Free Crochet Chemo Cap Patterns

There is something for everybody in this list of 22 free crochet chemo cap patterns.

While chemo caps may be something people can use year-round, a comfortable hat becomes even more important during the fall and winter months.

And since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it is peak fall season, sharing these hat patterns is a perfect match.

Who Uses Chemo Caps?

Just like with a chemo port pillow, not everyone is familiar with chemo caps.

And yes, I realize the phrase “chemo cap” may seem obvious, but still feel it’s good to explain more about them anyway.

A chemo cap is a form of head cover that people wear to protect and cover their head during their day-to-day activities while they are in treatment, as well as after chemotherapy.

Many people may assume that chemo caps are knitted or crocheted, but there are a variety of different ways to make chemo caps.

What Materials Do I Need To Crochet Chemo Caps?

Not everyone loses all of their hair during treatment, but many do.

This is why it’s important to choose materials that will not irritate a person’s scalp when you crochet chemo caps.

It’s also best if the yarn is machine washable so that it’s easy to keep clean.
