Welcome back to Plaid Week! This is the final pattern this week, the Women’s Crochet Plaid Trapper Hat. I wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for your encouragement, your kind and sweet comments and especially for your visits to my blog. It has made plaid week an enormous success! I have already gotten many requests for other plaid items, as well as other sizes in many of the patterns, so stay tuned for more plaid after this week! I also have several more ideas that I would like to make in plaid. I hope you aren’t sick of crochet plaid by the time I am done (if I am ever done, the things I can do in plaid are practically limitless)!
