V-Stitch is for Valentines Hat Crochet Pattern

V-Stitch is for Valentines Hat

It’s been awhile since I shared a little pattern love, so I thought this week would be perfect timing to share a bit of creating I’ve been doing between popping out beaded pencil cases.

This hat was inspired by a box of chunky yarn sent all the way from Colorado by a friend, a mom who is in the busy season of raising little ones, middle ones, and older ones. Her crochet hook has hit the snooze button, even while she can’t really get away with it herself for the time being.  Smile  Many thanks, Cindy! Your day on the hook will return!
