Hats for hair loss

I was recently approached by a family friend recently to make her a couple of hats after she lost all her hair to chemotherapy.

We designed the hat together. She had a couple of hats already but they slipped down over her face without hair to hold them in place, they were itchy or they were too warm to wear indoors.

We chose a super-soft jersey - 100% cotton to ensure it was breathable. It's got about a 20-25% stretch in four directions which allows it to fit really nicely.

The hat's formed of three rings and a circle to top it off. Each has been drafted to follow the exact contours of the head. The front is actually a different shape to the back. Each ring is formed of two pieces. All the seams allows it to form really closely to the shape of the head.

The first was produced in a dusky pink with contrast purple stitches. She was so happy that she requested another three - in a fantastic selection of colours.

So here they are - the colour choices are all hers - she's got a great eye for that. I hope you'll join me in wishing her the best for her further treatment.
