January is Hypothyroidism Awareness Month, The Healing Butterfly Beanie | Posh Pooch Designs

January is Hypothyroidism Awareness Month.
 When the thyroid is not "working properly" it is called the
 "Broken Butterfly", because the thyroid
 is shaped like a butterfly.
The New Crochet Pattern Release is called 
The Healing Butterfly Beanie


I have designed this Butterfly Beanie Hat the colors of the 
Thyroid Awareness Ribbon.
Teal, Pink and Purple

It is a simple pattern all stitched with
 Half Double Crochet Stitches and Chains.
 And It is made with Worsted weight yarn.

Thyroid Awareness Month at this LINK
