Night Watch Cap
This makes a great chemo cap when worked in a soft cotton blend yarn. The long ribbed section allows the wearer to pull it up or down as much as they like, while it hugs their head.
A note on sizing: The ribbing on this hat allows the circumference to stretch from 16-22 inches, making it a hat that will fit most adults (and some kids).
