Great chemo cap

The hodgepodge baby hat, when adjusted to adult size and adding in a ribbed headband makes a great chemo cap or just nice warm hat for adults and it doesn't take a lot of time to crochet. I'm not putting this in my original patterns because the hat is someone else's design.

You will need WW yarn such as RHSS, a size K and a size I crochet hooks.

To construct:

Using the larger hook, complete the Hodgepodge hat up to rnd 12 and do not turn. ch 1 and complete rnd 13. Switch to smaller hook and work headband as follows:

Ch 6, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across, sl st in first sc of last rnd of hat, sl st in next sc of hat, turn.

Sk next 2 sl sts, working in BLO (now and throughout), sc in each of the next 5 sc.

Ch 1, turn, sc in each of the next 5 sc, sl st in next 2 sc of hat.

continue as established all the way around hat, then sl st last row of band to free lps of beg ch of band. End off.

Photo will be coming soon.
