I’m not really a hat person, nor am I a bandwagon sort of person, so I was little surprised to find myself making the Pretty Puffs Slouchy Hat by Craftypants. The pattern has been hugely popular on Craftster and Ravelry but, up until this week, I’ve resisted it’s lure. I finally cracked when I was wondering what to do with a ball of yarn that has been lurking at the bottom of my stash for about 2 years – I thought it was about time I found a use for it and this pattern seemed ideal. I’m glad I gave in and followed the crowd. It is a lovely, lovely hat – quick and easy to crochet, used little yarn and is very versatile as it can be worn in a number of ways. Anyhow, enough enthusing, on to the nitty gritty….
Pattern: Pretty Puffs Slouchy Hat
Yarn: Cascade 220 Wool x 0.5 skein (not sure what shade sorry)
Modifications: None made although next time I might add in a few stitches to make the hat a bit more slouchy. I’m also planning a baby-size version as the babe tried my hat on and looked very cute!
