The Fallen Leaves Slouch Hat was inspired by a gorgeous skein of LB Collection Baby Alpaca I received from Lion Brand Yarn. It was so soft and it just cried out to be made into a fall hat pattern. Paired with a stitch pattern of lacework diamonds that remind me of falling leaves, the Fallen Leaves Slouch Hat is the perfect hat for apple picking and pumpkin patches and all things Autumn.
I don’t design knit patterns very often, but when I do, I enjoy it! These Stripey Knit Slouchy Beanies were super fun to make, and I liked switching it up from my usual routine. Even better, this week’s pattern is a reader request – to translate the Sweet Striped Crochet Hats into knitting. And to make it truly awesome… I’ve included sizing for the whole family!
The Spinning Summer Slouchy Beanie will help you wind down the summer in style. The design came to me at the same time as the Tallulah Waterfall Scarf. One stitch theory, two very different results! This beanie is light and airy; perfect for summer, or any time of year. It’s all about the fashion – and these spinning stitches are ready for the runway!
