Woman Knits Hats for Cancer Patients

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash--  One Richland woman, with a little help from friends, is giving her time to help local cancer patients. 

Her name is Debbie Fring and she knits hats that are donated to the Tri-Cities Cancer Center.  She and her friends have made over 130 hats.  She says it's the least she can do to help those in need.

And they're taking donations if you want to help.  But you have to knit a special pattern.

"This pattern above any other pattern we've made to donate to give to chemo patients just blesses people so much," says Fring.  "The yarn has elastic in it and it's cotton so it stretches to whatever size head the patient has so it doesn't hurt their head.   And it's just wonderful to make."

If you want to help out, the store Knitty Gritty Yarn has step-by-step instructions to make the special cap.  They'll even sell you the material at a discounted price for your contribution.
