Hi Ellen,
Thank you for the free Garden in Winter Hat pattern. If it is anything like your other hat patterns, I certainly will be making this one 'again and again'.
I have just finished making your fantastic Driftwood Cap and that's another one that will get lots of use and be made 'again and again'.
I can certainly see why it is a favourite of so many.
My only problem now is getting the recipient to model it for me so I can share a photo with you. I can't wait to try the Garden in Winter design. Thanks again and have fun during National Crochet Month.
