the start of a slouchy hat


Our daughter is on a huge quest to have a slouchy hat. And of course, who does she know that just might be able to crochet one for her?....


,
I searched many resources for this specific style of hat and didn't really find anything that looked like the popular 'slouchy' hat that my daughter so wants. And the one pattern that I tried to work up was just plain awful.... read ----> frogged.
.
But leave it to Mary Jane (again!) because in her CROCHET THAT FITS book, she has a pattern for a beret that is the same style as the slouchy hat.
,
And with her terrific technique of hdc in the blo only using 2 different sized hooks -- well honestly, this crochet technique has opened up this huge door for me to actually make gorgeous garments & accessories minus the confusion factor.
.
.

Okay, so slouchy minus confusion makes for one happy mom and one very happy 16 yr. old.

I love hats, but here at the south of Spain we don´t use to wear them. It is almost always warm. Nice week.

Slouch hats are definitely in and so trendy! Nice work and progress.

Hi, I'm actually commenting on your fabric flower tutorial. I found it over the summer and I have had so much fun making flowers. Today I'm making some out of simple canvas fabric and putting red zig zag around the edge of each petal. I think they'll add a special touch to my Christmas decorations. Thanks so much for sharing!

Hi! I was wanting to take a whirl @ trying to crochet this slouchy hat but did not see more details on the hook sizes or the type of stitches. Help please! Did I miss that part (link) somewhere? Merry Christmas!
