Updating The Etsy Shop

In the past few weeks I've been slowly updating the She Makes Hats Shop, adding some new items along with old favorites. I'm using the shop as a way to send some much-needed items to the refugee efforts in Greece. I'll be taking $10 from each item sold, and using it to purchase and ship necessities like underwear, socks, sweatpants, sanitary napkins, toothbrushes, and more.

I'll continue to add items to the shop over the next few months, and I'd love for you to check out what I've got available. Hats are sized from newborns through adults, so you can shop for everyone on your holiday gift list!

I've also added the patterns I use for my shop items to the shop for purchase as well. This way, you don't have to purchase a hat from me if you know how to knit, and want to make a few hats yourself to gift this season! With patterns, I'll donate $1 from every sale to the Syrian refugee efforts, so you're still helping others with your purchase!

On top of all this, I've got a coupon code that'll give you 20% off any purchase from the shop all weekend long!! Simply enter the code SPOOKY20 at checkout to receive this discount, whether you're picking up a pattern, a cowl, a hat, or multiple items!!

Anthologie Scarf

Pattern: Anthologie Scarf, by Ewe Ewe Yarns
Yarn: Ewe So Sporty - five skeins, one each five different colors
Hook: 5.5mm / US I

Oh, hello there blog! I feel like I've forgotten you existed - has it really been a month? Does it make it worse that I shared this scarf on Instagram like three weeks ago? Probably. Let's not talk about it, and just move on.

I found myself with a large selection of Ewe So Sporty yarn in my stash, and I just kept looking at it. I know, it should have become hats. That just makes sense, doesn't it? But I'd just finished 1,000 hats, and wanted a break. (Who knew it would have lasted this long?!)

And so a quick and fun scarf found its way into my project bag - simple crochet stitches with a fun and unique construction means this scarf can be made by a beginner crocheter, but even someone who's been crocheting most of their life will find it a fun project. I whipped it up in just two (three?) days, we snapped some super fast photos in the back yard like two weeks later (I KNOW!), and then the weather warmed up so I couldn't even wear it until .... well, it's still too warm for scarves!

Let's pretend it's cold enough for scarves though, because I'm in love with this one!
