I saw a free pattern for this Upscale Slouchy Hat at Hobby Lobby the other day and couldn’t resist.

I modified it, crocheting the band of single crochets instead of slip stitches – I just couldn’t get the hang of working slip stitches on top of slip stitches.  As a result of the modification, it took more than one skein to work up, with the last two rows worked from the second skein.

Here I am modeling the hat:

And I love this picture of me, looking at me, looking at me, looking at me….

Who's looking at who?

Who’s looking at you?

I’m not sure who is going to get this hat.  Maybe I’ll have to think again about setting up my Etsy store, because I bought more yarn to make more hats.  Call me crazy.
