    Thank you soo much for posting this pattern. I am IN LOVE with the cowl and can’t wait to make a matching hat. Plus, it’s a slouchy hat. That’s even better. I LOVE YOU SITE AND ALL THE PATTERNS YOU SHARE.

    THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

    I like the idea of fingerless gloves too! I have not finished the cowl yet, but was there enough of the Boutique Midnight yarn left that you were able to make the hat with the same skein, or did you have to buy another skein?

    • 11

      Tamara Kelly says

      Alas, both items take over half a skein – 187 yds of the Midnight total for the set, and each skein is only 153 yds. I am hoping to maybe squeeze the fingerless gloves out of the leftovers though – I’ll have to see how it goes!

    Thanks so much for all your patterns, you motivate me with your creativeness and colour. Thanks again for all the time and effort you put in to share with us. Truly appreciated.

    This is a very nice pattern, Tamara, thanks for the post! I have never crocheted a hat before as I did not really need one but seeing this hat you’ve made, I really want to try it! If I find the yarn for it I will definitely be sharing this pattern to others :) Keep up the good work!

    Hi tamara! I am Disou and I have been following you for quite some time on Pinterest! And recently I have noticed that something happened to the pins you put on the community boards! They appear on the board itself but not on your followers’ page. Therefore nobody sees them unless they actually open the community board where the pin appears…
    I have been having this problem for more than a month now. I have contacted the pinterest team for help many times but am still being ignored (sigh…) Maybe you know how to eliminate this bug…
    Thank you so much for all your sharing and the wonderful posts that you make available for all of us! I share most of your pins on my board and they are really appreciated! :-)
    blessings!! disouxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

      Hi Disou! I recognize your name from Pinterest! 😀 I’m so bummed to hear this. Oddly enough, I have the same problem with a community board someone else owns – I never see the pins on it unless I open it. I’ve gone through the settings on the Moogly Community board and there doesn’t seem to be anything I can do about it. :( I’ll try contacting Pinterest as well. Thanks for letting me know!

    I saw, and made, this hat yesterday. :) I love it!!!! I got a cute new haircut and wanted a cute new hat to go with it so this showed up in my fb newsfeed at the perfect time. Thank you!!

    Love this hat,and would like to make thw cowl too. Could you post a link to the cowl pattern? I also like the fingerless gloves idea.

    Angel says

    I just finished both this and the cowl. They were supposed to be a gift… but I’m going to make another set and keep this one for myself. Its so pretty. It looks like stained glass.

    Hi Tamara, I have a couple of questions on the ending rounds.
    Rnd 31 Do you enclose the previous round with both the v stitches and the dc’s?

    Rnd 33. Do you single crochet in the chain spaces also or just the actual stitches? How many sc’s for this round?

    Can you explain how you weave the tail? Do you weave thru each stitch around or kind of side to side?

    Thanks for your help. :)

    • 26

      Tamara Kelly says

      Hi Kathy!
      Rnd 31 – yes, enclose the previous rounds, just as you would have if you weren’t decreasing!
      Rnd 33 – sc in the ch sps – sorry, that could have been clearer, I’ll edit that. You should have 11 or 12 sc sts in this round, depending on which size you’re making.

      Weaving the tail is essentially going up through one stitch, up through the next, down through the next etc, as if you were adding a drawstring. Then pull it tight to close up the hole! :) I hope that’s clear!

        Kathy says

        Yes it does very much. Thank you for your time. I posted a couple of pics in my Ravelry project tab. ( Katsgrace) I think I am doing something wrong on the last few rounds. The last color round looks like a flower. Lol. Kinda cool looking, but I don’t think it is right by looking at other pics.

        • 28

          Tamara Kelly says

          Hm, it does look cool! But I’m not sure what’s happening either! It’s like a row of Color A is missing?

    Kay Davis says

    Thank you so much for the unique, beautiful patterns! I just finished the cowl, and want to make the hat and fingerless gloves.

    I would love to make a tote bag in the same design!

    Alicia says

    I’m a little confused. I didn’t do the FDC I just chained the 68 you put in the pattern and it doesn’t look like it will even be big enough to fit my 1 year olds head, much less mine. Did I do something wrong? I don’t want to continue making this if it isn’t going to fit or be proportionate. Any ideas of why this is happening?

    • 33

      Tamara Kelly says

      Hi Alicia! A lot depends on your choice of yarn and tension. If it’s coming out very small, switching to a larger hook will help!

    I found this pattern while looking for a crocheted slouchy hat for my tweener niece , at the behest of my sister. That being said, I must say this pattern is absolutely gorgeous! I believe it would make a beautiful blanket. I have always hated crocheting, going so far as to convert patterns into knitting, but this beauty has got me rethinking my aversion to crocheting and I thank you for that. :)

      Thank you Tammy! There’s a Moroccan Tile Afghan pattern here on Moogly if you decide to give it a try! :)

    Angelica says

    Gorgeous beanie, I love this stitch so I think I’l crochet the set with the fingerless gloves and not to give to anybody, friend or relative 😉 , for me-myself. If someone wants them will have to wait!!! Agai and again, thank you so much for sharing… Now I’m going to Ravelry to put the in my queue and favorites! :-)

    says

    Hi Tamara,

    Wow, I just love this pattern and your Moroccan Fingerless Gloves too! I just finished making the gloves and the hat and they were an absolute “blast” to make.
    I also put up a ravelry project page linking back to your page on this hat on ravelry.

    Thanks for posting this wonderful pattern. I have had a lot of people ask me where I found the pattern and I have given them your weblink at Moogly.

    Thanks again! :) :)

    Love this hat! My son wanted me to make it for him but he doesn’t want it to be a slouchy hat, any ideas how to decrease it slowly to make it a regular hat?

    Pearl says

    Another piece of outstanding work!! I love your patterns, they are easy to understand and the results are amazing. I received so many compliments wearing them. Please keep them coming. Cheers!

      Tamara Kelly says

      Thank you Mary! It should be in the ch-sp, but it if you have another spot you prefer, then put it there! :) It won’t change much of anything at this point, and it’s your project.

      I’m sorry Cathy, I’m afraid not. If you tell me what’s confusing you, maybe I can help?

    Athleen says

    Hello Tamara, I am enjoying making the slouch hat. I have watched your great tutorial on the subject and have learned a lot from it. I learn mostly via visual instructions. Have searched for other video tutorials with no luck. Can you create a tutorial on how to decrease in pattern please?
