This is one of my favorite patterns I make for "Crochet for Cancer" Maine Hats for Healing. I used the pattern from Raverly called "McKinley's Springtime Hat" and added the scallop edge. This is an adorable hat for any age. The flower is my own creation. It is done up in three layers. There are so many color combinations that would work perfectly with this design.
