I've been crocheting for a number of years now. I started out to find something to keep my hands busy while watching TV-better than snacking. I very quickly became addicted. When I found myself altering patterns I decided it was time to start designing my own. I began crocheting children's hats for Halos of Hope in 2010. They are a great organization that sends soft hats to chemo centers all over the USA. I hope my silly hats can bring some happiness to a child fighting a terrible disease. Please check them out at halosofhope.org.

Pattern written for Vanna's Choice yarn but any worsted weight yarn will work. Great stash buster as most colors use only one or two skeins. Get creative, mix and match your leftover yarn and turn it into something beautiful. NOTE: do not mix wool with cottons or acrylics as they won't wash the same. Yarn requirements may vary with different yarn selected.
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate. Knowledge of changing color mid-row is necessary for this pattern.
