Take comfort

This is my first crocheted hat.  I'm pleased with how it turned out.  Started on a Friday night and completed on Saturday, this charcoal cloche was a very quick project.  Crocheted in a soft wool-acrylic blend it is easy to care for and the brim comes down just far enough to shade the eyes, although you can't tell on the model because she's smaller than your average adult head.  The flower is pinned on and can be removed in case the recipient isn't much of a flower hat kind of gal. 

This cloche was crocheted for the mother of a coworker who will undergo chemotherapy this week.  She's already had a mastectomy and now fears losing her hair.  I can't begin to think that a simple hat can make her feel better but maybe she will find that it brings her a little warmth from the cold winter.

That is a pretty hat. I am making hats for my boyfriend's mother she is undergoing chemo & radiation she had lung cancer & had a part of her lung removed.

I am sure your coworkers mother is going to love the hat.

Beautiful hat and I love the flower. I'm sure the recipient will love it. The gesture of giving is just as beautiful as the hat itself.

I love the hat and agree with Tara - that you made something for her at all is going to mean more than you'll likely ever know. Very touching.
