Quick Hat, Good Cause

A hat made for the daughter of an acquaintance of a friend... is that sufficiently vague? The lovely girl in question is in the midst of chemotherapy, and a little distressed over losing her hair. This cap was made with the softest yarn the boys and I could find, which turned out to be Debbie Bliss Cathay. One skein made this hat, wtih pretty much nothing left over.

Her head's not really that big... that's a junior sized soccer ball in the photo. ;)
