      Here are some I found online: https://tipjunkie.com/chemo-hat-patterns/

      I just did a search on "chemo hats" and found these. I'm sure there are many others.

      Good luck.

      For crochet or knitting patterns join Ravelry. There are lots of patterns for chemo hats.

      I personally didn't like knitted or crocheted hats when I was bald. I chose pretty cotton scarves instead. I didn't like how the hats felt against my tender skin.

      Just buzz cut mine, was told if you shave your head the wig doesn’t stay on well. Only wore the wig twice, very uncomfortable. Mostly wore scarves, winter hats outside when it was cold. Headcovers Unlimited has caps with the wig attached. Expensive but worth it. I lived in them once Spring arrived! Good luck, stay strong.

      This may not be the right place to comment about this,but haven't given an update for awhile.Please let me know and forgive me.

      Update on my brain and bone cancer.Nothing is being done.They tell me it's a process to get to it.I guess they have to rule other things out ,before getting to the root of the problems on everything.I believe it's all about money.By all the experiences I had.

      I was told I would lose all hair with Taxol and Carboplatin. (ALL my hair including body hair, eyelashes and eyebrows). So about 3 weeks after it began falling out in mouse shaped chunks every morning, I had it shaved off. My scalp discomfort decreased greatly after that. I chose to wear hats and scarves. When I had my reoccurrence last year my hair thinned but I chose not to shave it. My scalp.was slightly uncomfortable occasionally. I wish you the best.
