I am a self taught pattern designer and mom of three children. They're a wild bunch but I keep myself sane by creating the lovely designs that are forever swirling around inside my head...while they play!

I made this a couple of years ago. Living in Minnesota I wanted something that would keep the head and neck warm. One change that I made was I knit some eyelets under the fold of the hood and threaded a tie that I made with Pom-poms on the ends so that I could tie it up tighter when the wind was blowing. It's warm and cute to boot!
