Quiet River Hat

You’re going to love how comfy and soft the Quiet River Hat is. It will keep you really warm during the winter too. You can always pair it with its matching cowl to stay extra warm.

Pancreatic Cancer

I designed the Quiet River Hat in a light purple in honor of those with pancreatic cancer.

One of closest and dearest friend’s grandmother, Yvonne, suffered from pancreatic cancer. Because I am an honorary member of the family (often liked more than the biological members) I was a shoulder to cry on and a ear to listen.

I remember being in the know about a few things before my “person” was, just so I could be the glue to help them from falling apart 90% of the time.

The day of Yvonne’s passing was all a blur. I was the support that the family needed with rides and making sure everyone was eating even though they weren’t hungry at all. All I needed was a look or someone saying “Trista, I need you to…” and I was there doing what was needed.


The yarn I used for the lighter purple yarn is Craft Smart Value in colorway Amethyst. It can be found at Michael’s (in store and online).

Michaels Knitting & Crochet

This yarn is surprisingly really nice to work with considering that I was just a few dollars for approximately 350 yards. It is way softer than Red Heart Super Saver.

For the dark purple I used the same yarn as I did for the Quiet River CowlPaintbox Yarns Simply Aran in colorway Dark Aubergine. This yarn is available at Lovecrafts.
