Breast cancer is an issue that is near and dear to my heart. My paternal grandmother died from this disease and my own mother is a thirteen year survivor of this disease. I offer this hat as a reminder to keep all of those brave women who are fighting this disease in your hearts and minds and to support all efforts to find a cure. This hat is made and designed by me with a very soft acrylic yarn. The colors are breast cancer pink and winter white. It will fit a medium to large head. The vintage button is plastic.

The yarns are a combination of a grey varigated boucle that has been crocheted together with a wool and acrylic blend worsted. The brim and earflaps are 3 strands of wool and acrylic worsted. The vintage 1940s plastic button is shaped like the crocheted flower ornament. Very warm and nubby. Sure to keep you cute and warm this winter.

I think this might be my new favorite. I made this hat for my daughter for Christmas, only hers is green and black. It was so cute that I made it in heathered grey and black. She was in between performances in New York, so I was lucky enough to get her to model it while she was home. It is made of super soft acrylic yarns, and the little black vintage buttons are plastic. I recommend washing it by hand in warm water and drying flat. This will fit a small to medium sized head, but I don't think it would fit a large head.

This soft and warm scarflette was designed and crocheted by me. The yarns are a combination of wool and acrylic. It has a vintage metal button that has a perforated design. The button has never been used.
