Pamala Buttoned Slouch – Free Pattern

Today is my mom’s birthday. It is also her 5 year anniversary of being declared clear of breast cancer; although the official word won’t happen until next month when she sees her doctor. The Pamala Buttoned Slouch was originally published on Cre8tion Crochet as a contributor pattern, and more of my patterns can be found over there as well.

My mom is such a strong lady and has come through so much. She is an inspiration, and I love her! After designing this hat, I created some other designs in the Pamala line which can be found in my Ravelry store HERE. You can also read more about my mom’s story and what led to this pattern line here on the blog.

NEW PATTERN: Pamala Earwarmer

I previously wrote about my mom and her battle with breast cancer. You can read about that here. This pattern is the next one in the line and there should be two more (boot cuffs and cowl/infinity scarf) that I am going to release either today or tomorrow.

I am in love with this pattern line and hope that you will love it too! My testers really liked the pattern, and the texture is wonderful (I love texture).

My mom is a breast cancer survivor. She underwent a double mastectomy and reconstruction and chemo and now deals with the lymphedema from the removal of lymph nodes when she had her mastectomy. She has been cancer free now for three years as of the end of June so she has a little less than 2 years to go until she will be considered at less risk for recurrence. She lives in Houston so most of the time doesn’t have to deal with really cold weather but still needs something on her head when it does get cool. Also, her hair is still wispy so during warmer months when she is out and about she needs to protect her head.
