I pondered over this pattern for some time, as I absolutely loved the way it looked in both Malabrigo Twist and Malabrigo Worsted. Twist has a lot more heft to it, and the stitch definition is amazing. Worsted is so soft and fuzzy and very lightweight. Both have wonderful qualities to make them favorites of mine. There is a very slight difference in row gauge, which makes the Twist hat just a tad longer, but both versions the are the same circumference. Beanie, A Little Slouch, or Extra Slouchy, which one do you want to make?
Super textured and super cute, you will be sure to turn heads when wearing this gorgeous hat!

Once upon a time, I lived in a small town and saw something crocheted and just HAD to learn what it was and how to do it. I was 11, and I haven't stopped since - I can honestly say that crocheting has been a huge part of my life. I decided to learn how to knit about 9 years ago, after being intimidated by it for a long time. So glad I finally learned!
I started actively designing in 2008 and haven't looked back. I used to sit down and create items for myself because I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for in other patterns. Then one day it dawned on me that I should try to write my ideas up for others. And here I am!
