What better way to end the week than to release a free pattern? I’ve been sitting on this one for a while waiting for the right day to take photos so you can all see the slouch in it’s proper glory and now, it’s yours! Find it for free *until Monday, June 18*, on Ravelry here. On Monday the price will go up to only $2.99.
A perfect Spring, Summer and Fall hat, the lacy texture mixed with the alpaca fibers keeps it warm and light. The pattern is a simple repeat and would be good for a beginner looking for something slightly more adventurous but not intimidating. The resulting drape and slouch keep it modern and fashionable while also functional and practical.
