Free Crochet Pattern...Fiona Button Slouch!


Ok lovelies, so many of you have have been requesting this for years (yes, years!)  I finally got around to working it up, and I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out!  The Fiona Button Slouch is an easy peasy slouch hat specially designed to match the Fiona Button Scarf (get the free scarf pattern here!)



It even has a decorative button that gives the same style as the scarf.  Using just one skein of super bulky yarn, you can make one in no time flat!

  4. Hi. I LOVE all of your crochet patterns. They are all so clear and concise, which is so helpful as a beginner :-) I made this hat last night and I am receiving a TON of compliments! It's great! I plan to make the matching scarf tonight.

    I did have a question for you though. As I was making the hat it kept getting bigger and bigger. I ended up running out of yarn before I could even get 12 rows of the squares in, and then when I seemed it together, it bunched up funny. The tension of my stitches was consistent throughout. I was hoping you could help me diagnose my issue? It's the first hat I've attempted. Thanks!
