Today I am revamping an old pattern–my first pattern actually. I didn’t have any idea what I was doing then(I am still learning, actually), but I was so proud of my first design. It was after this pattern that I decided I loved designing, and that I wanted to take my blog in a different direction.

Crochet. More crochet. 

Since this pattern needed a bit of work and new photos, I decided to give it new life. I still love wearing my Striped Hipster Slouchy Beanie. It works up quickly, has a classic shape and is so comfy.

I love this hat. So comfy. I love that it’s cool enough to wear a warm hat in the evenings here. 

Thanks for sticking with me! Designing has become one of my favorite things, and I am so grateful for the experiences it has brought me. I am especially grateful for YOU, for staying with me, and reading my blog.

  1. Love all of your patterns and thank you for all of your hard work even though I know it’s a labor of love

  2. I had a question about the band.

    1. Sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc 6. Turn. (7 sts)
    2. – 61. Work in front loops only. (you can adjust the number of round to fit your head.)
    Ch 1.
    Sc in same st. Sc 6. Turn. ( 7 sts)

    At end of 2. -61….”Sc in same st.”
    (as in both loops or FLO?)

    1. I am not sure! It’s stretchy, so I am sure it wouldn’t be a huge difference. You can just use a larger hook to make it a bit larger, if you feel you need to.

  3. Hi Bethany. I love the striped hipster slouchy beanie. It’s what ive been looking for! I’m having trouble understanding the first few instructions for the band. You say ” ch 8″ Then 1. Ch 1. I’m confused. Does this mean ch 9 altogether.? Help please. I’d really like to make this lovely beanie. I’m kind of new crocheter as I’ve retired from teaching kindergarten and I want to reacquaint myself with crochet

  4. Hi, Bethany! I am really enjoying your newsletter. Thanks for making it and your patterns available to the public. I have “liked” your Facebook site and have just joined the Whistle & Ivy crochet group. One might say that I’m a big fan of Whistle & Ivy. :-) BTW… what made you choose that name for your site? It makes me smile.

    P.S. I plan to use this pattern to make a hat for my granddaughter. She is a teacher by profession and is a volunteer at an animal shelter where she is outside a lot with the animals. I hope the hat will keep her ears warm! :-)

    Have a wonderful 2016!

    1. Thanks for liking and following! I do appreciate that you enjoy my patterns. Whistle and Ivy is from an old nursery rhyme about farming, and I grew up on a farm, so it seemed fitting :)

          1. I looked it up. Such a cute story and very interesting information about words in the poem. A history lesson! I’m glad I asked my original question . :-)

      1. Thanks! That’s what I did. I just figured you’d want to update the pattern. I’ll tag you when I finish! :)
