Okay, I have a confession to make. I am one of those women who spent her teenage years always having a hat or scarf to hand to cover my hair whenever it was being unruly and I had somewhere to go. It was only when I was working in a full-time front-of-the-house position that I actually only used scarf when I was sleeping to attempt to get a hairdo last a whole week.
But in the past 2 years, I’ve been feeling for hats again. And there’s nothing like Ravelry to keep that particular fire burning.
Last week, I found this really cool looking free pattern by the talented Jess at Mighty Aglet, which she calls Les Echelles Slouch Hat.
Pattern Materials: Sport Weight or Worsted Weight Yarn
Pattern Hooks: 5.5 for Band and 6.5 for Hat Body
Materials Used: Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in Black
Did it look like the photo on the pattern once finished? Oh yeah, baby! I’m so fussy!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Easy peasy to follow. Jess’ instructions are so clear.
Any likes or dislikes about the pattern? It was the stitch itself that drew me to the pattern. I just love the whole swirling look. No complaints.
Pattern alterations or any design changes made: None
Possibility of crocheting it again? Yup, need to try it with cotton yarn now. Acrylic yarn always makes the hats too stiff.
