I always enjoy the back story of how a designer develops a project. Marie received some sample yarn, and since there was only one skein, this is what she came up with. Like most of her other hats, this is available in various sizes with notes on each. This is a really pretty self striping yarn and I will certainly be looking for it. I just found out our local JoAnns is doubling in size, and Hobby Lobby will be opening by this summer. More yarn!
