Couldn't quite decide on how to embellish this one - so I'm using it as a blank canvas for whatever brooch I would like to showcase on the day...
So this one is another Free Pattern available online.
It's called Urban Jungle and is designed by Vicki Howell.
As you can see, it's a Crocheted Slouchy Beanie!
Now for my modifications:
- I worked an invisible join for the rounds… which looks MUCH better than the join the pattern asks you to do! Sl st into the top of the 1st puff stitch to finish the round, then sl st into the next ch-1 sp… work puff st in this space to begin the new round
- I used a 4mm hook for band, then a 5mm hook for remainder of hat... don't really remember why... I think that it was to make the band stitches tighter, and less likely to stretch.
- All those puff sts really CHEW through the yarn!!! They make the hat very heavy too. Perhaps next time I would make smaller puff stitches, using only two or three wraps?
- I know that I made the large size - because I have a large head - but really, the small one would have been fine!
