Stash Bust Challenge, 2014 September Update

Crocheted in Cascade Yarn’s Bentley

Crocheted by Darleen Hopkins for Halos of HopeI just finished this hat about an hour ago and I’m really excited to share it with you!  This past Saturday I was playing around with some of the fantastic Cascade Yarn I received from Shannon a few months ago and decided to “wing it” with an idea.  Four days later I have this adorable hat!  I’m really pleased with the final design and pretty sure this one is going on my “make sure your write up this pattern” list.   I used 100% of the 3.5oz skein.  The hat can be worn with the ends rolled up and the hat pushed back, slouchy style, or pulled all the way down over ears.  I added a pompom because they are fun.  But I didn’t sew it on.  Instead, it is attached with a safety-pin so the user and alter the style either with or without the pompom or it could be removed when the hat is washed.  I hope you like this one as much as I do!

Bentley yarn is an easy care, 75% acrylic, 25% superwash wool blend.

Halos of Hope is falling short on the need for adult hats.  I’m going to try to get at least one more done before I mail this one out.  I’m behind in my Stash Bust Challenge for 2014 but I’ll keep on stitching!
