RED Hearts are guests posts on I Heart Daily from the authors of RED: Teenage girls in America write on what fires up their lives today. RED Hearts will be posting every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday through February.
Today’s RED Hearts post is from Erika Kwee, 18, of Houston, Texas, who writes about the making of the Pretty Puffs Slouchy Hat:
To begin with, let me say that I am not a hat person. I hate wearing them. They tend to squash my bangs awkwardly across my face, or they make my head itchy, or they just poof out weirdly… It’s good that I go to school in Texas, where it’s not ever really THAT cold.
But. Over winter break, I decided that I needed a new knitting/crochet project. Besides, I was home in northern California on a damp, dreary Eskimo-hood kind of day and tired of scarves. I wanted a quick, cute project–so I ran an Internet search and came across this free pattern for the “Pretty Puffs Slouchy Hat” on a blog called Crafty Pants!
