I tried to get my 11 year old stepdaughter to model for me this past weekend, but it didn't go over too well...too bad too, cuz that brown/auburn hat would look great on her with her red hair and pale skin. (yes, i have a red-headed step-child).
I'll probably force Athena to model the last hat for me later today. If I do, I'll post pics of that one too. I still have to write out the pattern for the last one and post it on Ravelry. in my copious free time.....
Thanks for the pics--they are great and an inspiration--love the colors. I have lots of bits of this and that which would make great hats. My mom goes for monthly injections that are a type of chemo but she still has her hair. The next time we go, I think I will ask the nurse if she knows of anyone who would like a hat and what color that person might like.
that's an excellent idea. If you're on ravelry, I really like the "butterfly hat" listed on there. I altered it slightly to use a thin yarn, but otherwise it's that hat. The only thing to keep in mind the yarn HAS to be super-soft...the scalp is so sensitive without hair anyway, then chemo makes their skin even more sensitive. Caron Simply Soft works well, although i try to use the silk/bamboo blends, or straight bamboo.
