We recently adopted our daughter from Honduras and if you don’t know Honduras is in a warm climate that rarely sees snow. I’m so excited for her to see her first snow! While it hasn’t happened yet I wanted to get her ready so I had her go on to pick out some yarn for a hat and maybe a scarf. After looking for a bit she was drawn to the bright colors of Chroma. She settled on the colorway Pixie and I think it suits her nicely.  I hope you enjoy this fun free crochet pattern!
