Stronger Together Mini Slouch

This Stronger Together Mini Slouch was originally going to be my design for the 2016 Cancer Challenge hosted by Sweet Potato 3, but then I saw another designer had a hat that was similar….OH NO! So I messaged her and asked if she was okay with me releasing mine which she graciously agreed to. The hats are different enough that it isn’t really an issue but once I was told about the similarities I didn’t feel right releasing this without checking first. So a little delayed but here it is. This post only contains one size of the Stronger Together Mini Slouch but once I get a few edits taken care of on the final  document, the other sizes will be available as a premium pattern. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the Stronger Together Mini Slouch in the child (18″) size as my contribution to Cre8tion Crochet this month.

NOTES

  • You are free to sell items from this pattern. However, if you do choose to sell items made from this pattern, I recommend a retail pricing of $20-25. This recommendation is made in an effort to protect other sellers and the integrity of this pattern.
  • Beginning chains do not count as stitches.
  • Color A is the band and overlay color. Color B is the background color.
  • Sizing is forgiving due to stretch. For more slouch, increase repeats of body rounds.
  • As you work the hat, if you do not carry the yarn between color changes and weave the ends in, the hat is reversible.
