Hey everyone, my name is Aria Colón. I am the creator of SundaeYarns, where you can find patterns and hand dyed sock yarn. I am a lifelong crafter and I am at my happiest when I am able to create. I’ve always had an appreciation for all things handmade; admiring that each piece was made with intention, individuality, and has its own story. Being able to bring a bit of that magic into the lives and homes of others is what inspires me. I am so excited to be able to share a pattern with you guys on The Hook Nook. One of my personal goals is to create as many inclusive patterns as possible; things that all levels can accomplish and use. The “It’s a Breeze” shawl is an easy project that is just as simple to wear and pair with all sorts of outfits... seriously the possibilities are endless!
