My name is Anastacia, and I am the scrap yarn/one skein queen. I buy my yarn mainly at yard sales/thrift stores, so I got used to making do with what I could find. So most of my patterns are designed to use up the odd skeins or leftovers in your life, and are geared towards beginner crocheters or those who just want a fast, easy, but still pretty item.
I'm a 30 something adult living in MA. Iâ€™m married, have a wonderful cat named Wedgie, & I work full time. I also teach knitting & crocheting at my local Michael's & squeeze in designing as many hours as I can a week.
I do love to hear from everyone, but please remember that I am busy, just like you, & will reply as soon as I can.
All of my patterns use USA terms & abbreviations.
I try to layout my patterns as simply as possible to save money for people printing at home. My patterns are as short as possible, usually with only one photo on the first page, which you can easily skip printing to save ink.
This pattern was first published in Crochet Pattern a Day Calendar 2006 & was called "Universal Shell Lace Hat" and then later published on my first blog, Granny Square Woman, as "Peach Shell Crocheted Hat" (because the sample was made with a peach colored yarn). It's been completely rewritten and re-edited for clarity.
Circumference at base of hat: size small 16" (stretches to 18"), medium 18" (stretches to 20"), & large 20" (stretches to 22"). Pattern includes all 3 sizes.
Thank you to JBSpinner, redcurlysue, knitterbeth, HSULadybug, TanyaRC & crochooked for testing the hat & thank you to Chaitanya (cmuralidhara on Ravelry) for her tech editing.
