Hook’d: Les Echelles Slouchy

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.

Hook’d: Navy Brimmed Slouchy

Do you crochet? If you do, then Ravelry is the most awesome website you could ever have found! I remember when I first discovered it’s existence last September and thinking, where have you been all my life? And there are thousands and thousands of free and ready to purchase patterns for crocheters and knitters!!! It’s like our version of a candy store!! There’s even a yarn database so you can even covet more yarn than you ever possible dreamed of owning!

Ravelry is where I found the very easy to follow and reasonably priced patterns of ScarFanatic on Ravelry (as well as Etsy, where she sells her finished objects). She presently has 31 designs available on Ravelry for purchase, which showcase a variety of different styled hats and jewellery.
