Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus and both landed on the planet Earth to create a new whole world!
Fashion was completely different for both men and women; and both the styles fused together to form a 3rd gender in fashion, Uni-sex. This stood for commonality in the apparel like trousers, shirts, tees, beanies, caps, scarves, blazer, tuxedo. Some link this fusion of styles with equality and same status for both.
For all these years, though feminine couture has held the fashion empire high, the masculine trends are slowly catching up.
I created a Black Slouch Beanie for the female customer where I decided to use men’s slouch beanie as my base design idea.
The process is simple. It is series of Double Crochet Stitch (DC) and few Front Post Double Crochet Stitch (FPDC), and Back Post Double Crochet Stitch (BPDC). The beanie contains 2 parts:
- Basic Beanie
- Additional Brim/Edge
Starting with a magic circle, make a basic beanie of DC stitches. The beanie height measures 9″.
For creating an edge, I have used FPDC and BPDC respectively and continued following the stitches for 2-3 rows until the edge measures 1″.
Total Slouch Beanie measures 10″.
Note: You can play around and alter the sizes as per your preference. the brim size can easily be extended to 2″ or increase/decrease basic beanie to get you desired slouchy effect.
- Height of the hat: 910″
- Circumference: 21″-22″
The sizes could be alter based on the count of the stitches for the rows.
- You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
- You can add pom-pom matching the color with the edging or the base color. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
- You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
- You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.
Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
