Timba is a design that was inspired by a woman who was passionate about the fiber arts. She often brought crochet projects to our local knit/crochet circle and was genuinely interested in and supportive of all who attended.

She recently lost her battle with breast cancer and her stash yarn is being used to make scarves, hats, and booties for a local organization that provides support to people touched by breast cancer.

Timba is a hat that I think she would like and was made possible through her stash yarn. The organization will be receiving a number of these hats to distribute.

Timba is worked from the bottom up and has a half double crochet brim that gently slopes to the body of the hat.
