I Call Her Passion

Now that the weather is getting a little warmer it’s time to start on some colorful spring time hats/beanies.  Since the weather is changing it’s time to change to  lighter and brighter yarn.    I’m enjoying the collection of I Love This Yarn  by Hobby Lobby.  You can compare this to the RedHeart With Love collection.  The only difference I can see is the I Love This Yarn is a bit softer and not as thick as the RedHeart With Love.  They are both good brands and I will continue to purchase them both.  It’s totally up to you, I just say  create something magical with your yarn and hook.

This pattern is your basic beanie pattern.  If you have a favorite pattern that you like to use, then by all means use it.  There’s nothing complicated with this pattern and if you are familiar and comfortable with making hats this is a breeze.  The flower I used comes from  Big Bloom Hat pattern.
