About

It began with just one little hat....

During the winter of 2009 I was a stay at home mom to a sweet little girl and a chubby baby boy. While visiting a local store, I grabbed a crochet pattern book full of hats, some very brightly dyed cotton yarn, and a hook. I began a heavily textured women’s hat and, to my surprise, I ran right out of that brightly colored yarn. So, I took out a few rows of stitching, looked at the pattern and tweaked it just enough for my little ball of yarn to be enough to complete the hat. When the hat was completed it had become a darling, ruffled, toddler hat for my cute girl. Everywhere I took that sweet girl and her ruffled hat we received a compliment!

Most patterns I have looked at over the last two decades are packed full of confusing terms and outdated styles. I was determined to write some of my own trendy patterns! I bought yarn, yarn, and more yarn! I made hat after hat until I had the style and sizing just right. The process would begin again for each new idea and style. Our cozy two bedroom condo became an explosion of yarn, handwritten patterns, scissors, baby toys, and more yarn!

I was introduced to Etsy by a friend, and after a little browsing, I really became motivated. With the loving support and encouragement of my husband I explored the idea of opening my own shop. After several months of preparation, the shop became a reality in late 2010. Although The Buttercup Basket specializes in crochet hats for children and adults, it has grown to include: crochet patterns, children’s apparel, and a variety of other accessories.

Now with over 20 years of experience in crochet, and many years in pattern design, The Buttercup Basket has become part of the family, along with three more children! It is a crazy, busy, fun, exciting, and stressful life; especially around Christmas! All Buttercup products are created by me from my own original designs and patterns. I am a perfectionist, for better or for worse, and thus every piece I create is completed with meticulous care and attention to fine detail. The support of family, friends, and customers keep this little business thriving. Enjoy the shop!

Welcome to The Buttercup Basket! I hope you find something you LOVE!!!

The Buttercup Basket specializes in crochet hats and accessories for babies, toddlers, children, teens, and adults. Buttercup products are handmade with quality natural renewable materials of cotton and wool in a clean, pet-free, smoke-free home. Each piece is created with meticulous care to detail and then carefully and neatly packaged.

HAT SIZING
Sizes vary according to hat style, therefore, size charts are found in individual hat listings. Children's ages are included in each chart and are to be used for guidance, however, to ensure the best fit it is best to measure before purchasing. If you are uncertain about size in cases such as gift giving, I recommend purchasing the next largest size to allow room for growth.

To measure the head use a soft flexible measuring tape. Measure at the widest part of the head-- usually just above the brow.

Please note that cotton hats may require some time and wear to mold and shape to the head so they may initially feel slightly snug.
