I am looking for a pattern for a kind of scarf for my boyfriend's mom. She will be starting chemo on Monday. She hates wigs and she has seen these scarves, she said they are a triangle, with a head band and you can tie it if you want. They are made out of material.

Try the site. They have a site "crafting for good" that lists several things you can make for mommas in chemo. Her local cancer support group would be an excellent place to contact also.
