Lacy Chemo Cap for AOLer; Pattern Included

My hook has just been flying for the past several days ... finishing up WIPs faster than one grabs all the yarn in a sales bin!  Oh, I wish I was finishing them that fast!!  Heh heh heh   ... But I have been finishing up quite a few and I'm really delighted about that because this means I can turn my thoughts to those in need and crochet items up like the chemo hats pictured below. 

Yes, those are hats I crocheted for an individual in the AOL community that is in need -- they're fresh off the hook and ready to go!  (**You-know-who: please email me with your address and I'll ship them out ASAP!!**) 

The light colored one is very light & airy.  It really lets the fiber "breathe" and is just beautiful in person.  The other is a thicker hat (pattern is on my website). Would you like to try the lacy one? (that's the light colored one in the photo; click onto the image to see it larger)  If so here's my pattern, please note the copyright, thanks.

This cap really lookes interesting and with the new "fuzzy-type" yarns how beautiful they will look.  I've been doing chemo caps all summer and to make them more interesting have been adding crochet flowers with leaves.  Does anyone have a crochet pattern for rose buds from yarn?  I believe God wants me to add white rose buds to a light blue cap I've just finished and am having a difficult time trying to find a pattern.  Any help would be truly appreciated.  Thanks, LadyJo
