Jules Slouch Hat
I crocheted myself a slouchy hat. A pale pink one (naturally). Just because I wanted to and just because I could. I look a bit of a bugger in anything too close fitting so favour the more flattering softness of a slouch. My mum admired it and asked for the pattern. Then Jayne, a lovely lady from one of my crochet classes, asked the same. Then a kind customer also asked. So I made another two, one slightly bigger than the other, and wrote the pattern up.
I used Debbie Bliss Rialto DK (I love that yarn). Approximately 70g (150 metres) in total.
Using a 5.5mm hook ensures a delicious fluidity to your crochet but consider a 5mm hook if you're a loose crocheter.
Once you get into the rhythm, it's a quick make and ideal for beginners comfortable with the half treble (half double in US terminology) stitch.
