Item details

Handmade item

Material

cotton yarn

This lightweight cloche for warmer weather, with a big side bow, was done in crochet. It was designed especially for women, teens and girls with cancer. The 100% cotton yarn is a lavender and the cotton yarn makes it very comfortable for all day wear. The cotton yarn also gives this hat a bit of stretch. When you put on this cute cloche, you're sure to receive a lot of compliments! And when you purchase this cute cloche, I will donate 10% of the purchase price to Susan G. Komen.


MEASURING YOUR HEAD
Using a tape measure, measure around the head just above the eyebrows.

SIZING
Extra Small - 19 inch circumference, fits ages about 2 to 5 years
Small - 20 inch circumference, fits ages about 5 to 12 or 13 (same size as the adult small hats)
Medium - 21 1/2 inch circumference, fits teens to adults
Large - 22 1/2 inch circumference, for larger heads
Please note that crochet hats do stretch.

WASHING
I would recommend hand washing in cool water.
Gently squeeze out excess water; wrap in a towel and blot; then lay flat to air dry.
You can machine wash on a gentle cycle, then lay flat to air dry.


The Story Behind My Chemo Hats:

As Thanksgiving 2012 approached, my dear friend Margaret was diagnosed with Stage 3B, triple negative breast cancer. Margaret was also a widow who had lost her husband to lung cancer. She had no children, and no family in the area, so we fought her cancer together. As chemo began and we realized she would lose her hair, we searched for a cute solution. But Margaret has a very small head and one-size-fits-all hats cover her eyes! Since I crochet, I offered to start making her some custom hats.

We quickly discovered any type of fuzzy yarn would not work well on a bald head. Fuzzy yarn is scratchy, too warm, and looks like outdoor apparel. So we decided to try cotton yarn, and this provided the perfect solution. It’s the ideal weight for comfortable, indoor, all day wear, and it makes up into a hat that looks like it's meant to be worn indoors. We chose 2 styles, a turban and a cloche, and thus it began. Every chemo session Margaret would have a new hat, and this always brought her many compliments. This gave Margaret an unbelievable lift in her spirits!

That’s when I decided that all women and girls going through chemo, who would lose their hair, deserved a cute hat or two to wear. And so it began......
