Yay! This slouch hat was designed for the 2017 GrannySpiration Challenge! I knew I wanted to create a hat with a solid granny square band, but wasn’t set on how I wanted the body to be. After some brainstorming and working, it hit me! The pair of a solid granny square and the traditional granny stitch pattern - and I LOVE it! Especially with the aqua and white color combo - a great wintery color combo. Materials: - 120 Yards each of Worsted Weight #4 Yarn - I used Red Heart's With Love in Iced Aqua and White - I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook - #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends & Sewing Closed Material Notes: Yarn Alternative: Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn Yardage is estimated based on appearance of skein. I would estimate you could make at least three of these hats with one skein each, if not four. Time Spent: I didn't realize that it took so long to finish because it seemed to work up so fast, but according to my math, was just under five hours. The band will take you the longest. To fit average teen/adult.
