“I have to type up this hat pattern for Mary Lou.”
William gives me a look.
“It’s weird for me to call your kindergarten teacher Mary Lou, isn’t it?”
“Yeah…she’s Mrs. Paul. Just call her that.”
I met my husband’s kindergarten teacher (a knitter and occasional crocheter) at a craft sale a couple months back. She was so sweet and introduced herself right away. Once she heard my name, she looked at me funny and asked who my husband was. When she realized that I was married to William, she asked if I would be able to figure out a pattern for her.
She gave me a cute hat with a flower accent. It was a beautiful pattern, but the color and yarn type were not my cup of tea. The original crocheter had used a rough yarn in a dark teal with a gray accent. It looked strange to me and didn’t feel too comfortable.
After figuring out the pattern, I decided that I should try crocheting the hat to make sure I didn’t mess up the pattern.
I settled on using Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice in Denim Mist for the main color. Since I didn’t have a gray colored Vanna’s Choice already, I decided to use Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in Light Gray for the accent color.
This yarn made it so much softer and prettier. I really love this hat. The Denim Mist is so beautiful! And, as a blue-eyed woman, I love wearing blue.
Of course, you can use any color you’d like, but I definitely recommend using Vanna’s Choice. This yarn is so easy to work with and comes in very pretty colors. I think I use this yarn more than any other kind, to be honest.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I do!
