Hi! I’ve been crocheting for a number of years now and am somewhat addicted to designing hats. I love making silly hats for silly kids. My passion began when I came across a fantastic group, Halos of Hope, (on Ravelry too!) that distributes handmade hats to chemo centers around the country. My heart breaks when I think of young children having to go through chemo treatments, and I am hopeful that my hats will bring some happiness and silliness to them. I am proud to be a Halos of Hope volunteer. If you like my hats, please make one or two or more for Halos of Hope (www.halosofhope.org) or find a local organization that distributes hats to kids’ chemo centers. I plan to add additional patterns as I create them so please check back often.
You can find my self-published designs here on Ravelry, Etsy and Craftsy. I also have patterns carried by Knit Picks and e-Patterns Central. Some of my designs have been published in Crochet Today!, Crochetvolution, Tangled and upcoming Crochet 1-2-3.
Follow me on facebook as I will introduce new patterns there and offer Ravelry coupon codes.
