Amazing Grace Crochet Charity Drive~ Week 1 Featured Pattern

Amazing Grace Hat

Weekly Featured Pattern

 

Amazing Grace Hat

To start the charity drive off, I would like to feature the first Amazing Grace Pattern I designedThe Amazing Grace Hat!  I designed this hat with those in mind who would be or already have lost their hair due to cancer treatments!

When my dearest friend Sandy started losing her hair, I brought her up to my hairdresser and we both cut our hair off together… I was willing to shave my head, but she wouldn’t let me.. We both had long hair at the time and we went very short…  It was one of those times with my friend that will always be remembered as one of our best and worst times all wrapped in one…  Shortly after our haircut,,, Sandra began losing her hair. Sandy  lived 3 hours from me and I hadn’t seen her in a few weeks,,, My oldest daughter had just graduated from basic training in the Air Force and we stopped by to visit with Sandy on the way home…  The first thing she did was pull off her wig and show us her head… We all laughed and cried!

 Losing your hair can be traumatic… And a nice soft hat can be so comforting… Something to keep in mind is the yarn you use and the season it will be worn… I love making these Amazing Grace Hats in cotton for summer wear and an extra soft acrylic for winter wear!!

I hope you will consider making some of these Amazing Grace Hats for our charity drive... Click Here for the Free Pattern!  All the details and rules for this charity drive and prize package giveaway are in the Amazing Grace Crochet Charity Tab at the top of the page…

Stay tuned next week for another featured Amazing Grace Pattern and more of my story about how Sandy’s Breast Cancer inspired me to design all of the patterns in the Amazing Grace Series!!  Also… Next Week I will be releasing a brand new Amazing Grace Hat Pattern.. A new look and new hat design!!
