2014/40 – Super cute slouchy hat

Hey there!

I’m a new admin here, (I’m “the tall one”, daughter #1). I’m 22 and I’m a university student and new dressmaker. I’m still learning to sew clothes but I like to make things that look a bit different from current fashions (mostly involving popular styles in different or surprising fabrics or prints). Something I want to experiment with is mixing crochet and sewing projects together, since mixing textures and fabrics together on clothes seems to be quite popular at the moment. As far as that goes, watch this space!

Today’s post is about a really pretty hat pattern that we found, which I really like because it’sย quite comfy and great for a bad hair day. It’s also got lots of gaps in it, so it’s quite breezy, enough so that you can probably wear it in the summer if you want. This would probably look cute with glittery/shiny wool or the occasional shiny little bead threaded throughout.

For this one, just bear in mind that when it says “single crochet”, that’s a UK double, and where it says a “double crochet” that’s a UK treble crochet.

  1. I’m 20 and a student as well! I want to start sewing so badly and I crochet too. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t wait to see more from you! ~ Megan

    • Hi Megan! Good luck with your crafting, I put it off so long just because I wanted to “learn the basics” first, but I gave up and decided to learn on the job, and it’s going OK. Can’t recommend it enough. Watch this space for more! Happy crafting ๐Ÿ™‚
