Does any one know where I can find a "mop cap" pattern? I have one for one made of cloth but would like to knit one for my "chemo patients".
The type cap I am hunting for was called a mop cap back in "the olden days". Kind of a shower cap with a brim. How's that for a description?
Any suggestions appreciated.

Do you mean a "mob cap" like this: http://www.libertybellmuseum.com/MuseumShop/mobcap.htm? They were usually sewn and I've never seen a knitted one but if you put "mob cap" and knitting patterns in Google you might get lucky.

Clarify whether you want a brim or the ruffle shown in the museum picture. The newsboy's cap pattern I have for sale at www.knittingvault.com can be converted to a mop cap by making the top part larger and it has a brim, but not a ruffle. I can convert it to a ruffle for you if that is what you need.

How about that? We always referred to them as "mop caps" because they were worn when cleaning but the picture is exactly what I am looking for. Will follow up on both the suggestion of "searching" and Fran's suggestion.
Thanks to all.

An easy way to do it is to knit a circle of approximatly 18 inch diameter or larger (9 inches or more in radius) - putting a row of eyelets about 2 inches in from the outer edge. Run a ribbon through the eyelets to gather the circle up into the mob cap and tie it off in a bow.

Many doily patterns will work for this.
