So this one comes from Simply Crochet’s website, and I think it looks really cute.
I think this would look even better in hot pink and lilac, or some other combination of a bold colour and a paler one (though you could pick a combination of really bold colours too – I think that would work well if you alternated the colour on the stripey detailing, by having 2 different colours for the detailing and one for the rest of the hat, or even using a multicoloured yarn for the detailing).
Plus, if you don’t want the rim of the hat to curl in this case, you can look at this post here for tips about that.
Note that this pattern is already in UK terms. Find it here: http://www.simplycrochetmag.co.uk/2013/07/24/free-patterns-sun-hat-sunglasses-case/

I make my slouchie beanies from the brim up, rather than starting at the crown. I’ve noticed that often this brim will curl up a little. Not a terrible problem but it can be annoying and un-pretty.
I recently started a new slouchie beanie for my daughter (in soft rainbow yarn!) using a foundation double crochet (single for US crocheters), and I’ve noticed that the brim isn’t curling. Yay!
So today we have some really cute sandal-style foot decorations, which look so cute! There’s a lot you could do with these even without the flower.
My mum made me some and I asked for her to add some beads to glitz it up a bit, sort of like Greek-style shoes. You could add all kinds of glam, like glitter or use shinier wool, or remove it completely and just go for simple. You could probably experiment with different shapes, colour combinations or stitches if you want as well.
Note that when is says single crochet (“sc”) it means a UK double crochet, and a US double (“dc”) is a UK treble crochet.
