Crochet Slouchy Hat

Hello to you.
Hope you're all well.
I always enjoy reading through my favourite blogs and when I came across this particular post here on Jennifer's blog, I felt totally inspired.
I love a hat when it starts getting chillier. They cover a multitude of bad hair sins on a morning school run too!
At my local charity shop I had a real bargain with this yarn - £2 for six balls! Such a good bargain that I treated myself to a mossy green pack too!
I wanted to use it for something special and I knew when I saw the above post that's what I'd use it for.

The pattern you can find on the above link. I found the pattern really easy to follow. In all honesty though, I have to tell you I did have a little mishap! I began my hat in UK double crochet and soon realised it was an American pattern. Silly me! Oops.
So after a little unravelling I was back on track.
and here it is, complete and modelled by me.
Perfect for Autumn walks in the woods!
My daughter has requested one next.
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend, whatever you're up to.
Thank you for your kind comments on the last post, always so lovely to hear from you.
Now to carry on with the Cath Kidston inspired blanket!
A huge thank you again to Marianne at Ladybird Diaries for making my day with a mention in her post, pleased as punch!

  3. Well done finding the bargain yarn - that's a mighty fine hat! And I wish the world would agree on one crochet language... Chrissie x

  4. Hi FB - what a great job you've done with your hat, and you look great in it - and I seriously love the colour! Gosh you did well with your yarn purchase didn't you - right place, right time. Your hair looks lovely and glossy, as well as long; we have a neighbour with hair so long it's past her 'bum', it must take a bit of drying!
    Have a great weekend and keep well - I hope your partners chest has cleared by now!
    Warm hugs,
