Hello friend! I'm Bethany, and I am the designer and blogger behind Whistle and Ivy, a creative crochet blog. On Whistle and Ivy, you will find lots of free crochet patterns, a bit of needle art and the tiniest dab of knitting. I love making all types of projects, from baby booties to home decor, and I really enjoy designing pretty hats that impress your friends when they as where you got it. February's Furls CAL is this cute and cozy Andean Peaks Crochet Hat, with a lovely tri-stripe pattern and gorgeous peak stitches. It's an easy stitch, but it has a stylish effect.
WHAT WE ARE MAKING
This chic hat works up rather quickly and the CAL includes instructions for a slouchy-style hat as well as a beanie-fit hat. Both styles are so well-loved that I knew including both versions would be a good idea.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
One of my favorite parts about starting a new crochet project is picking out a color palette. Many of my designs include 2 or more colors, and it's so fun to mix and match different ones. You can make this hat all one color, for which you will only need one 100g skein of yarn (208 yards). However, if you enjoy playing with colors as I do, you can use three colors.
For the slouchy hat, I used Knit Picks Mighty Stitch in Silver, Conch, Marina and Mint. For the beanie hat, I used Knit Picks Mighty Stitch in Silver, Sky and Cream.
You may also want to top it off with a pom pom!
