Strawberry Slouchy



In honor of my Facebook page reaching 400+ fans, a promised new pattern - the Strawberry Slouchy! I designed this hat as a special order for a dear friend as part of her oldest daughter’s Halloween costume. (Shout out to Brooke & Amya for the inspiration!) This hat will fit most kids, teens and even some adults.

There are tons of free patterns on the internet for crocheting slouchy hats. This is my go-to pattern for creating the loose, relaxed looking beanie that is so popular right now. If you have ANY questions about constructing this hat, please let me know in the comments, e-mail, or on Ravelry! Enjoy!
