Recently a friend of mine made an amazingly adorable hat and shared it in our Facebook group! Many people asked about the design which she freehanded. Many hoped she would design it but she'd never written a pattern before. With encouragement, she decided to give it a whirl! I'm so glad she did! It's a great design that I had the privilege to test!
It's seriously my new favorite hat! I know that you will love it too!
It is an intermediate pattern, but not to difficult. I love the way she explains how to work the cables and she's given me a new love for reverse single crochet. (we kinda had a love hate relationship but I think I have it down now) The construction of the hat is great! If you love slouchy hats (which seem to be the popular style this season) then you will really like this hat! The cabling on the brim make it thicker, so it's warm and cozy.
Add some personal flare by adding a big button or 2-3 small buttons. I've even seen few make the brim one color and the hat body another or variegated! So many options! This makes the perfect gifts by pairing it with the matching fingerless gloves!
Here are my samples:
Made this one with impeccable, I can't remember the name but it's black with jewel tones metallic thread. It's really pretty in person. The button is black with glittery sparkles too!
It's my new favorite!!
Wanted to make another because I loved the pattern so much! Chose a more neutral tone and a soft yarn. My new favorite Lion Brand Heartand. It's a cream heather.
I wanted to make matching gloves with the Heartland but I ran out on the 1st glove so I told my hubby to pick a color. He said purple. I found a skien of Bernat Sheepish in Plumish. Gorgeous color!! I added a winter touch of sparkly snowflake buttons.
So let's get to that giveaway!
