Description

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.
