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

There's a nice number of flower patterns on the lionbrand.com website that are fairly easy to do.  More can be found by searching on the Internet using key words such as "crochet flower pattern"
Happy Hooking,
