Free Crochet Pattern: The Sharon Slouch






This pattern has not been tested and I would rate it as an intermediate pattern.


NOTE: My patterns are free and I would like them to stay that way. You are free to print them out and pass them around but please make sure my blog address is somewhere on the pattern (http://knotyournanascrochet.blogspot.co.nz/) so that people know where the pattern originated. 

Please do not sell my patterns or say they are your own. You are free to do whatever you want with the finished item. If you are selling them online please link back the pattern and give me credit. I took the time to write this pattern out so the least you can do is take the small amount of time it takes to give me credit.


Materials

4.5mm hook
Yarn: DK 8 Ply. I used Olympus by Crucci. Please note that this particular colour seems to be thinner than the rest of the colours in this particular yarn.

    1. Sorry it should say rows 2-7. I have fixed it now. Thanks for picking up on that.

    2. Thanks for that. I am new to crochet and I have made it to row 9 of this pattern but it doesnt seem to be coming together right and I tried to count my stitches and still cant find my mistake. So when you say to skip 4 stitches that means that you leave all 4 of those empty right.

    3. Yes that's right. I just made the hat up to that round to check the stitches work and it seems fine to me. If you need any more help I can attempt to draw you a chart.

  2. Hi! Your hat looks lovely...I'd love to make it for a friend! One thing, is it written in British or American crochet instructions? Thanks!
