Today’s challenge pattern is the Zebra Stripe Hat by Valerie of Valerie’s Handmade Creations. Let’s learn little more about her!
I am a wife and mom of a teenage son. I also am an RN at a local hospital. My mom taught me to crochet when I was 12 years old so that I could get the crocheting badge for Calvinettes (now called Gem’s Girl’s Club). I was hooked (literally)! I have now been crocheting for over 20 years and my mom says that my skills have far surpassed hers! I always have to have my hands busy, so yarn and a crochet hook are never far away.
I enjoy sharing my love of crocheting with friends by teaching them to crochet. I also enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and occasionally making a knit item or two (hence the name of my business).
I started making my own patterns when I couldn’t find one I liked online, and then decided to start writing them down when I had orders for more and had to remember how I did the first one! This is my first pattern that I have ever shared with anyone. I hope you enjoy it!
