2017 Cancer Challenge Day 7: Crochetverse

As our weekend is now in full swing, we are starting day 7 of the Cancer Challenge. Over the last week we have seen multiple different hat designs. Each one has fun and different characteristics. This is what makes designing so fun. Each design speaks to someone different. This is the same for those going through cancer. It is so nice to get such a variety of patterns to donate so that one will speak to someone in each center. All these fun designs and all you amazing crocheters make this Cancer Challenge a success, thank you!

Cancer Challenge Day 7: Crochetverse

This year, as I was looking for new designers, someone mentioned Stephanie from Crochetverse. This was a new shop to me and as soon as I browsed some of her designs I knew I had to ask her to join. I have been missing out! I was beyond thrilled when Stephanie quickly said yes!

Crochetverse’s crochet designs are full of color and full of life. Stephanie even went above and beyond and designed a new hat pattern called, the Squiggles McGee Hat. This is just too much fun!

Cancer Challenge

The Squiggles McGee Hat comes in sizes from Toddler up to Adult. Add color anywhere you like for a totally different look. What a fun design! Now for the Key to the Cancer Challenge…Your Pledge!
