Another child's hat from The Velvet Acorn.
I didn't make the hat as long as the pattern suggested, so it isn't really slouchy. As there were 4 stitches left when closing the top, I made a little iCord and sewed it into a loop.
Also I added some of my own design crochet flowers and pearl buttons rather than the crochet flowers in the pattern.
The yarn is not available here in France and, anyway, I wanted to use up my stash, so I used Rowan's Felted Tweed, doubled. It worked well, I thought.
HeidiMay's patterns (The Velvet Acorn) are well laid out and easy to read, but have some mistakes in them (at least the two I have done so far did!) and I feel that the pattern is written by someone who is NOT a native English speaker. I would not suggest tackling them if you are a relative beginner to knitting.
I am currently close to finishing the Lilian Beret (see this post) for the second time. I pulled back the last attempt as it was GIGANTIC and floppy and looked 100 years old... If this latest attempt is also no good I will be very disappointed, as this was the pattern that first attracted me to The Velvet Acorn's designs.
