Black Ice Slouchy Hat
This is an intermediate level hat as it uses crochet colorwork to achieve the look. It is a good project for those who are trying out colorwork for the first time as it only uses it in one round and it is a simple repeating pattern.
A reasonably quick pattern to make. It is a great gift.
The hat comes in several sizes, small enough for a toddler and large enough for an adult man.It comes with links to video tutorials describing some of the techniques.
I used Moda Vera Gardenia for my sample but the hat has been made successfully in other yarns by my testers. Gardenia is a bamboo yarn and is very soft, using different yarns gives a different but equally beautiful look.
Black Ice has been tested by the wonderful testers in the [Happy Hookers Hangout].
This pattern has been tech edited by the wonderful (and patient) [boricuacrochet] who can be found here on Ravelry if you are in need of a tech editor.
