I made this for a coworker undergoing chemo, and was surprized how easy and quick this was to make. I was prepared to add some length to it to be sure it would completely cover her head, but I found that wasn't necessary. This is a wonderful go-to pattern, that would work well for a man or a woman, depending on the yarn selected. Another Sweater Babe winner!
