I just mailed this hat my son is modeling to a little girl going through chemo. The pattern came from http://maggiesrags.com/freeflowerhat.htm. I used a finer yarn, so it took forever to knit. I added some extra rows for the ruffle at the bottom so it could cover her eyebrows, and made it the same way as the top ruffle but added four extra stitches to each ruffle so it would be really ruffly. The flowers are made from cords with buttons for middles and I put a cord through the bottom ruffle so she could adjust the tension around her head.
*I just love all the work everyone is doing. I find it so inspirational and just cool that there are people out there making some really neat stuff and not the stuff you find at the "country store". Thanks. Cheesy
