My eye caught these recently when I was feeding my yarn addiction. I had to grab a couple to see what I could come up with.
First, let’s review this yarn. It’s a lighter weight than I thought it would be, I worked it up with a size I hook but … I’m guessing a G or and H would be more fitting.
I’m a big texture girl as well and this yarn is so soft! Like, baby blanket soft.
So my first inclination is always to try a yarn with a hat. I can do it without much thought and I can get a good feel for the yarn that way. So yes, I made a slouchy beanie!
This photo shows nicely how the colors fade into one another. The white color is a bit off-white so I sewed on a super white faux fur pom pom to continue the fade with just one more shade.
So far, I like it!!!!! I still have enough yarn to make probably two more hats… thinking of experimenting with a matching scarf, however….the experiment continues. I also bought the same bundle in the color ‘Rose‘ so we’ll see what project I decide to try with that one!!!!
For now, here is the pattern I used on the above slouch:
1 Bundle Big Twist Gradients
Size I Crochet Hook
1 Faux Fur Pom Pom
ch – Chain
hdc – half double crochet
FPHDC – half double crochet front post stitch
BPHDC – half double crochet back post sitch
hdcTog – half double crochet together (decreasing stitch)
Ch. 58, join with slip stitch, careful not to twist chain
Row 1: With first color choice, HDC in each stitch around, join to top of first HDC with slip stitch
Row 2: Ch 1, *FPHDC, BPHDC* around, join
Row 3-5: Repeat Row 2
Row 6: HDC in 3rd loop of each stitch around, join
Row 7: HDC in each stitch around, join
Row 8-12: Repeat Row 7
Row 13-17: Repeat Row7
Row 18-22: Repeat Row 7
Row 23-28: Repeat Row7
Row 29: Ch. 1, HDCTog around, join
Row 30: Ch. 1, HDCTog around, join
Pull yarn through stitch to tighten and cut long tail for sewing, turn hat inside out
Using a yarn needle, weave tale in and out of top stitches and cinch tight. Double knot yarn around a solid stitch in the center of your cinch and tie off, weave in ends if you prefer.
Tie on pom pom if desired
Enjoy playing with this yarn, it’s going to be a fun one I think!!!
