Snowballs Hat by Angela Plunkett

A fun and quirky style slouch hat for girls of all ages. Simple stitches are combined to create a unique hat with sporadic “puffs”, plus a ribbed edging – perfect for keeping you warm and fashionable this winter! 

The Designer: Angela Plunkett

Angela’s main goal is to create unique, modern crochet patterns utilizing all natural fibers—100% organic cotton, wool, alpaca, and more. She sells some finished items made from her patterns as well. Angela is part of a homeschooling, baby wearing family of 7, trying to live as green and sustainably as they can. She has taught her older daughters to crochet and they will occasionally help her with her shop items, or watch the baby while she finishes a project.
