Choosing an all-cotton knit makes these easy caps very comfortable on sensitive skin. Some folk state that this pattern is a tad too tight... so you may wish to increase the size of the band pieces from 17" x 21.5" to measure 17" x 22" (adding 1/2" to the circumference of the band).

Find the pattern on Hancock's website under Free Projects: Chemo Caps.
