I ended up missing FO (Finished Object) Friday this week, but I still wanted to share the two slouchy hats that I made this week. I am super happy with how they turned out! I shared a few sneak peeks of them on my last WIP Wednesday post.
The first one I finished was for my husband and I really want to steal it!
You can find the pattern on Ravelry here. It’s called the LAMB inspired hat. I did 18 rows of double crochet and 5 rows of single crochet.
The other slouchy hat I made this week was for myself. I don’t often make things for myself and I’ve been wanting to make this pattern for a long time now.
I’m really loving this pattern. It’s very easy and has lots of trebles so it works up pretty quickly. I made this hat in the medium size. You can find the pattern on Ravelry here. The pattern calls for a knit band, but I’m no good at knitting! Instead, I made a ribbed single crochet band and slip stitched the edge of the band to the last round of the body of the hat. I’ve written below how I made the band. If you want the band wider or narrower just adjust the number of beginning chains.
Ribbed Single Crochet Band:
sc in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across (8 sc) then chain 1 and turn.
sc in front loops only to end (8 sc)
Continue until band is desired length and slip stitch ends together.
I hope to make a few more of these, I think it would look great in a burnt orange colorway. I’m excited to start making some cute cooler weather items! Even though it’s been over 100 degrees here in So Cal the last few days! Maybe I can will the cooler weather to us…
I started a new square this morning and it’s looking really cute. Although, I don’t think it will be right for the project I had in mind for it, but I’m sure I can come up with something else for it.
I hope you all are having a beautiful Sunday and keeping cool if you’re lucky enough to have the kind of heat that we do here! My boys are all asking to go to the pool, so I think I am going to make us all some lunch and head on out for some afternoon swimming.
Go……….create something beautiful today!!
