Project Chemo Caps has turned 8 years old this year! I can't believe that I have had the privilege of donating chemo caps for 7 seasons.. and this year will be 8!
In 2013 there was a very busy year in my neck of the woods. I was able to donate quite a few caps. However, I want 2014 to be bigger and better! So I am turning to you! I would love to have some people all over donate to their local hospitals, children's centers and oncology departments.
Please look through our resources on what hats and yarns are most wanted, in most cases. I would also love for you to share your story!

The Baby Beanie can be done with individual rounds or in a continual round. You will want to use individual rounds if you want to make stripes on the cap. The video tutorial shows a continual round. The picture symbol instructions are for individual rounds.
