9 Knit & Crochet Chemo Cap and Prayer Shawl Patterns for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, many of you may be knitting or crocheting items for charity, or to show support to someone you know who has been affected by breast cancer.  Giving someone a handmade gift during a time of need is a thoughtful and special way to show you care.

Below, I've selected a few patterns for hats and prayer shawls that are easy to care for (so the recipient doesn't have to worry about hand washing and drying), and great gifts for giving to that person who just might need an extra pick me up.

Hats are a perfect gift for someone going through chemotherapy treatments; the hat will keep their head warm and protected as the effects of the treatment start to take place.
