I like this style hat a lot. It was a tad too loose for my head, but I just got some yarn that matched and sewed it up from the bottom a little and it's perfect. My head seems to be a bit smaller than most. No problem. I just love it, especially in this bitter cold weather. The color goes nicely with my black coat and also my tan coat. I like the fact that it was hand knit just for me. Nice work! Thank you. It arrived when promised.

This is the one that started it all. I made this hat and it took off! I love the Bohemian artistic look of it. As one customer said, wearing it 'makes me feel like painting something!'
I've made this hat 235 times. I remember making the very first one thinking no one would want it. I'm happy to be proven wrong!
I love making this scarf! You get so much texture from a simple stitch. That means a big fashion bang with the added bonuses of being soft and warm. This is the perfect grab bag gift for a coworker or club member.

About

Color Your World.......

It's all so simple, really: take a loop, make another loop, pull through first loop. That is the essence of knit and crochet. But that movement; done over and over, can create the most wonderful items that add beauty to your life, home and spirit.
I learned how to knit back in grade school, I didn't have needles, so I learned on pencils.

Creating the item you purchase isn't my goal.
It's the work itself that is my destination. The process of making your hat, scarf or shawl is where my passion and joy finds a resting place. The end result is that you will have an item handcrafted with love and a grateful spirit knit in every stitch.
Whether you want to keep yourself cozy warm, need to compensate for a not so good hair day or arrive stylish and fashion forward at the wedding, designbcb handcrafted items will take you there. No need to worry or think about it. You're dressed.

I want every thing I make to reflect the love, peace and strength that went into making it. I want it to add value and beauty to the world - to your world. This is my passion - created for you.

Thank you for coming by!

    My poor hubby. He once lived in a house. Now he lives in a yarn barn. It's in every room, even the garage and I've never knit in there. His wish is to get a path from one room to another.

Frequently asked questions

Discontinued and Unavailable Fibers

Yarns may be discontinued by the manufacturer at any time without notice. When that happens, I will substitute a yarn that is as close to the original as possible. If no acceptable substitution can be found, I will cancel and refund the transaction.

When do Items Ship

I allow for up to 3 weeks to create and ship an item because items are made to order. You will receive notification from me via email when I have started your order and again when it ships.

How do you ship?

I use USPS shipping. Buyers choose whether to have item sent First, Priority or Overnight unless the weight of the items makes one of the options unavailable. For instance, prayer shawls cannot be sent First Class because they are over the weight limit.

International customers are responsible for all fees, tariffs, taxes, etc. to their own country. Custome fees may be assessed by a country and those costs are the responsibility of the buyer.

Because each country has their own procedures, delivery dates may be impacted. International orders will contain a customs nuber. The buyer can use it with their customs office to try and track a package. Full value is declared on every package - every time - even for the royal family.

Custom and personalized orders

We want you to be happy with your purchase. Items can be returned within 5 days of receipt if it does not fit properly or is not as represented. Contact us through the Etsy Conversation system to discuss the return.

Every effort will be made to correct the concern. A store credit will be issued for the purchase price should the item be returned.

Custom orders are final. Pattern sales are final. Afghan sales are final.

Shipping is not refundable.

Sometimes a fiber or material will be discontinued by the manufacturer. If possible, I will substitute a fiber at equal or greater value with similar properties.

What if I Don't Receive My Order?

We will open an investigation with the USPS. No refunds will be made until that investigation is completed. The tracking number allows both the buyer and seller to see where the package is in the delivery system and will assist in finding the package.

We take claims of non-receipt or missing items very seriously. Upon notification that items are missing or never received, we will open a case with the USPS and ask for an official postal inspection. This will include filing a form with all information, including the information of the buyer and seller. The postal service may interview the buyer and ask for a signed affidavit. Refunds are given after the inspection concludes AND if the inspection finds fault with the delivery system.

How Do I Return an Item?

First, contact me through the Etsy Convo system. That provides protection for both buyer and seller. DO NOT RETURN AN ITEM WITHOUT CONTACTING THE SHOP FIRST.

Second, your shipping label must have tracking information, package weight and you must have confirmation of acceptance from the USPS or whatever carrier you use.

Lastly, keep the receipt and confirmation available until the transaction has been closed.

Stolen Items

Please note, it is the buyer's responsibility to have a secure location for packages to be delivered. Packages left on porches or other unsecured, unlocked places, are subject to theft. We are not responsible for stolen or taken items.
You may request delivery confirmation for an additional $3.
As with lost or undelivered items, we will assist you in filing reports with the local USPS and local police authorities.
If buyer provides a valid police report, we will redo the order for half price created as a custom order.
