Pinky Crossover Slouch Hat and Yarn Review | Posh Pooch Designs

This Crochet Pattern can be adjusted to be 
made into a Messy Bun Hat, 
a Ponytail Hat,
 a Beanie Hat and a Slouchy Hat!
Originally this Pattern was just a slouchy and Beanie Hat, but I got so many requests for a Video for a "Messy Bun Hat or Ponytail Hat,
That I decided to make a video showing how a pattern I already designed, could be adjusted
 to one.

See The Video on my Youtube Channel 
at This Link.

Pinky Crossover Slouch Hat and Yarn Review
I have been Holding onto this Hat Pattern
 and yarn review for few weeks.
Today seemed to be the day to release the pattern 
and tell you what I think of this yarn.
First of all, I love Red Heart Yarn.
They have all sorts of styles, colors and textures to choose from.
The yarns are constantly changing, adding new colors, 
and they keep up with modern trends.
Of Course I still love the original Red heart Super Saver 
and this hat pattern is perfect for this yarn.
This is a newer color, Pink Panther variegated.
I Love how it has a short repeat of colors.
To me, it seems that the Super saver if have gotten lately,
 is much softer then the Super saver from years ago.
The hat Pattern is really easy, It is designed from the Hatband up.
It has a fun Crossover texture stitch that looks great with this yarn.
