It’s been a while since I made something just for me, for the sake of making something!
(and this has everything to do with the super secret project I’m currently working on – more on that soon!)
My friend Stephanie from A Bag Full Of Crochet (whom I’ve met last year) designed this awesome slouch hat a while ago, and since I got dreads and am insanely worried about burning my scalp in this heat, a slouch beanie was just the thing I needed! :)
Officially this is a reversible design, meaning you can wear it the right way and inside out, but since I was in a hurry I didn’t really sew in my ends that well, so my slouch beanie isn’t reversible ;)
I used six colours (out of necessity really; I somehow have run out of cotton yarn! I guess it had to happen some day ;)) for my slouch beanie. I just love all the different textures and stitches; it keeps this design interesting and really fun to work on! I finished this in one evening, and I used Drops Paris cotton yarn and a 5mm hook.
I went to my mom’s place the other day to have her take pictures of me wearing the hat, but then my baby sister showed up, and she’s a MUCH better model than me! So I took pictures of her wearing my hat instead ;)
It looks pretty good on her too huh? Seriously, that girl could wear a garbage bag on her head and she would still look awesome! Some people can get away with anything ;)
If you’d like to make this pattern yourself, head on over to Stephanie’s Ravelry store to grab it.
OR, if you leave a comment on this blog post, you might just win the pattern! :) (open till next week, to all readers!)
