Skill Level : Easy
Material:
Hook : H
Yarn Needle
Yarn : Caron Simply Soft - light beige, light pink
Button of choice

Stitches used:
Chain - ch
Single Crochet -sc

Treble Crochet - trc ( for flower)

Gauge: 
15 Sts = 4” 
9 Rows = 4”

This pattern is designed for teens and adults going through chemo.
 I chose Caron simply soft, because it is very soft, and some of the stiffer
 yarns can be itchy and painful on naked heads.
