The Yarn Queen Hat – Crafting with Corona VI

The editor of the Afrikaans magazine I design for, requested a poofy hat. When I sent a photo of myself wearing the hat to my testers, one person said the hat looked like a crown. When I modelled the hat on Facebook in a life video, Heidi Wahl also said it looks like a crown and called me The Yarn Queen. So there is a hat that will make you feel like the yarn queen!

The lovely Patricia from Malawi.
