My niece loves the purple and pink colour; so I planned to gift her a winter hat with the same combination of the yarn. I bought the purple and pink shaded ombre yarn. After finalising the yarn, I started looking for a modern pattern which will be an embellishment on her head. Thus I named this hat as Urban Slouchy Hat.
Later, I planned to make Mom-Daughter Urban Slouchy Combo Hat using the same pattern. Why should the Mom be deprived of accessorising themselves?
- Ribbed Base: the base was different for adult and child. No. of the rows differs per the audience.
- Body: a combination of Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC).
- Top: sewing the ends to close the top
- Pom-Pom: Using the process defined in Additionals.
- Multiples of 8. 4 FPDC and 4BPDC.
- FPDC and BPDC required a bigger crochet hook or loose stitching technique to get a flowy basketweave pattern.
- Depending on the texture of the yarn, you can either choose a larger crochet hook other than recommended one or you can loosely stitch FPDC and BPDC.
- since I always do tight stitches, I choose bigger crochet hook than recommended one. It is more of testing a couple or rows to see the flow.
- For edging the last row, you can change the crochet hook to a smaller size to give a tighter set.
Dimensions of the adult hat:-
- Height of the hat: 9.5″
- Circumference: 23″
Dimensions of the child’s hat:-
- Height of the hat: 9″
- Circumference: 22″
The sizes could be altered 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 colour with the edging or the base colour. 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 accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
