Drawstring Beanie with Yarrow Flower
"The best chemo caps are made with love using soft yarn with minimal seaming. For this pattern, I used Lion Brand Natures Choice Organic Cotton Yarn. In addition to being extra soft, it can be delicately machine washed and is appropriate for most patients with allergies and chemical sensitivities. Since cotton yarn can shrink unpredictably, I designed this hat to feature a drawstring tie that keeps it firmly on the head. I also added a small yarrow flower embellishment. Many cultures around the world have historically associated yarrow with healing and health."
