Urban Slouch Hats

 

Hats are one of y favorite accessories to make. They’re quick and easy to make – ok, not always easy! But the hats in this book/leaflet are all rated easy! Urban slouch hats will fill that need for instant gratification and you’ll be able to wear something fashionable that will turn heads.

Kristi’s patterns are always super popular and fun to make. As always check your gauge so that you don’t have to rip it out if your project is coming out the wrong size.

While all the pattern are rated easy, that doesn’t mean they’re boring. There are so many ways to customize your crochet. There is a help section with general information such as gauge, terms, and abbreviations.

Bonus: Every single pattern includes multiple links that will take you to online video tutorials for basic stitches, special stitches used, and techniques you may need help with. I believe this is an invaluable tool for those who are visual learners. 

 

Urban Slouch Hats


While all the hats have an urban slouch look, there are plenty of styles to choose from and you can customize with your own color(s). I’ve only shown you a few of my favorites but you can head over to the Leisure Art’s website and see the rest of the projects. Come back and tell me which one is your favorite.

 

Happy Crocheting!
