This organization was founded by a teenager, Taylor DeVries, who recognized a need in our area to provide hats to patients who need head warmth. Most of the knitting is done by Taylor, her mom and neighbors, so you can see she needs help.
For a list of the medical organizations and offices that have already received her hats. visit her blog at http://tete-a-tete-hats.blogspot.com.
There are some wonderful resources online for chemo cap patterns. I have found the most popular to be this one: http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt18.htm , however any of the patterns found at headhuggers.com are great. They do have crochet patterns as well.
All of us have been touched by a family member or friend stricken with cancer. The need for comfortable head coverings is great.
Hats for Tete-a-Tete can be any pattern or yarn as long as the yarn has no wool content and is soft since cancer patients wear these hats during the day and many sleep in them.
Patterns are available at all Guild meetings or can be gotten by e-mailing Arlene Shaposhnick at: email@example.com.
