Today’s the day!
The Sloane Hat crochet pattern is now available!
It comes in sizes baby to adult large, and it’s perfect for a boy or a girl.
Which is why I named it the Sloane Hat…since Sloane works for a girl or a boy. I also wanted to name all of our children Sloane…but got vetoed. So, I’m settling for giving the name to one of my patterns. ;)
There are a couple of fairly tricky stitches, but I provide full color, step by step photos on how to complete each one. Some of my testers were beginners, and they said they learned a lot and that it was totally doable.
So you’ll have more budget to spend on yummy yarns. :)
Depending on your skill level, one hat takes 1-2 afternoons. There are a lot of repeating rows. So, once you get the hang of it, it’s a great project to keep your hands busy while you watch a movie.

*As with any pattern. To achieve best fit, use measurements and not age guidelines. Age guidelines are only provided for those that want to gift or sell their finished hats.
**There are more notes on sizing, fit and how to grade up a size, in the pattern.
You can also choose your slouch. The adult sizes come super slouchy (as pictured) with easy instructions for a less slouchy version.
Wear it hanging low in the back, or pull it forward. It all goes with this hat.
I want to give a big thank you to all my testers who really made this pattern so much better. I also want to say thanks all those who responded to my tester call and were willing to help. You all rock!
