To Celebrate our Amazing Grace Crochet Charity Drive… Here is my 10th Amazing Grace Free Crochet Pattern!!

Keeping in the style of the Amazing Grace Stitch Pattern… This hat pattern is a variation of the Amazing Grace Blissful Beanie,,, It is the same great style, with a fashionable slouch effect!  The Amazing Grace Free Crochet Pattern Series is dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness and my dearest friend Sandra Kay Gilb who passed away in 2007 from this unfortunate disease.  Please consider paying it forward to those who are suffering or recovering from cancer by donating items made from my free patterns…

Amazing Grace Blissful Slouchy

Materials

Yarn ~ 125-150 yards Worsted Weight Yarn Total(Pictured above is Vanna’s Choice by Lion Brand Yarn)

Color A~Main Color

Color B~Accent Color

 

Although all worsted weight yarn is  graded to be a #4, there is variance between brands… I found Red Heart With Love and Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice to be a great weight for this hat and  also soft.  Caron Simply Soft was wonderful for the softness, but made the hat slightly smaller.

Hook ~ I

Scissors and Yarn Needle

 

Gauge

Using Vanna’s Choice and a Clover Hook… My personal gauge in a Half Double Crochet swatch is:  6 Sts x 5 Rows = 2″ x 2″.

 

Stitches

St – Stitch    Sk – Skip     Sl St – Slip Stitch    Ch – Chain     Sc – Single Crochet     HDC – Half Double Crochet     FPSC – Front Post Single Crochet
