Lovely Crochet Slouch

crochet hat for valentines day, free patternLove, one of the easiest and most complicated positive emotions. Please read this post to learn about the “Positive Psychology and crochet” link and find out more about why our favorite hobby makes us so happy. This year I want to write patterns with happiness in mind. When I set out to make a hat for this season it was COLD! My mind immediately went to creature comforts. The free crochet slouch pattern has a double brim that I made to keep my loved ones nice and toasty. I am a mother of two and it makes me very happy to know my kids are comfortable and warm. Lion Brand’s Wool Ease seemed perfect for my mission to create a snugly slouch as the animal fibers will retain heat better than solely acrylic yarn.

The free crochet slouch pattern is for adults and teens below. If you’d like to find the printable PDF in sizes Baby through adult go to my Etsy shop here or my Ravelry store here!
