Hancock Fabrics Store Sewn Chemo Cap
Sewn Head Hugger
Designed by: Hancock Fabrics' Home Economists
Choosing an all-cotton knit makes these easy caps very
comfortable on sensitive skin. Some folk state that this pattern
is a tad too tight... so you may wish to increase the size of
the band pieces from 17" x 21.5" to measure 17" x 22"
(adding 1/2" to the circumference of the band).
