Free Pattern Release: The Golden Days Slouch

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.

perfect summery slouch

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.
