BONUS CROCHET PATTERNS (Sorry, not theme related):
10 Crochet Beanie Hat Patterns - "Crochet beanie hats are the perfect all-purpose gift: Babies need hats, elderly people wear hats, and so does almost everyone in between; they're great for keeping your head warm in cold weather but they also make a stylish accessory. A handmade beanie is special because you made it by hand with someone in mind the whole time you were creating it. But this project can also serve a purpose, like as a charity crochet project for those undergoing chemo, for example."
PATTERNS (Sorry, not theme related):
Only the Best Knit Hat Patterns - "I don’t know about you but I’m excited that it’s hat weather, and I’ve rounded up the best knit hat patterns I could find, just for you! I love knitting hats because they are super speedy and make great gifts. Not to mention, hats are the best way to have fun with fashion in cold weather! I hope you love what I picked..."
