My daughter loves slouchy beanies and I offered to crochet her one from Lisa Gentry’s Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for the Family Book 2 from Leisure Arts. The booklet has 9 designs to choose from, most done in worsted weight yarn and at an easy skill level.
My daughter picked the Pop Star beanie, which is the main design pictured in tangerine on the cover. The original design was done in Red Heart Soft yarn and I wanted to stick with the same yarn as the original to have to best chance of getting the same look and drape. My daughter wanted a “grey that wasn’t too light, but wasn’t too dark” so I went with grey heather.
I’m happy to say that she is pleased with the finished product and has been wearing it just about every day! She’s even had a friend say she wants one. I’d call that a success!
