Crochet for the Playdate Cafe

When I saw the colors for this weeks playdate cafe, I was stumped.  What do you think???

I went into my craft space and pulled out some distress inks that matched the colors and made a water color background for a card, but couldn't figure out exactly how to use it so I put it away and figured i'd get back to it. 

Then while I was exploring the web, I found this crochet pattern for a beanie and I had a plan.  I scoured my yarn stash and found four suitable colors then got to work.  It only took about two hours to crochet this up!


I still have the distress ink background lying on my desk...I still have time to figure something out with it ;)
