To Celebrate our Amazing Grace Crochet Charity Drive… Here is my 10th Amazing Grace Free Crochet Pattern!!

Keeping in the style of the Amazing Grace Stitch Pattern… This hat pattern is a variation of the Amazing Grace Blissful Beanie,,, It is the same great style, with a fashionable slouch effect!  The Amazing Grace Free Crochet Pattern Series is dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness and my dearest friend Sandra Kay Gilb who passed away in 2007 from this unfortunate disease.  Please consider paying it forward to those who are suffering or recovering from cancer by donating items made from my free patterns…

Although all worsted weight yarn is  graded to be a #4, there is variance between brands… I found Red Heart With Love and Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice to be a great weight for this hat and  also soft.  Caron Simply Soft was wonderful for the softness, but made the hat slightly smaller.

The Amazing Grace Free Crochet Pattern Series is dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness and my dearest friend Sandra Kay Gilb.  Sandra passed away in 2007  from Breast Cancer.  This was a devastating loss and spurred my passion for Breast Cancer Awareness!  At the age of 43 Sandra was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, the same disease that took her mother’s life many years earlier and claimed Sandra’s life in less than 2 years.  Each Amazing Grace Pattern is designed to comfort cancer patients as they are treated and recovering from this or any disease!!  Please pay it forward by donating items made from these patterns to help someone afflicted by this disease.

 

I hope you also enjoy making them for yourselves, for gifts and spreading the word about Breast Cancer Awareness by sending other crocheter’s to my site to build Awareness and a Charitable Community!
