BOHO BREEZE Hat Crochet Pattern

SPRING is on the backburner! 


The freakish Arctic weather has come back to haunt us, and the "The Beast from the East" version two, has brought more snow and chaos to our door. Strong icy cold winds and sub-zero temperatures kept us indoors with the central heating on ALL day (which is not the norm for us), AND NOW THEY ARE PREDICTING ANOTHER RETURN OF THE BEAST FOR EASTER! So looks like spring is going to be late this year.


For a short spell, I was dreaming of enjoying a bit of sunshine, checking out the daffodils, spring walks, and finally getting into spring clothes, however, that is not going to happen just yet, so I've decided to design this BOHO BREEZE Hat which will be perfect for these cooler days which we are and will be having for the rest of March.

BOHO BREEZE Hat is the perfect spring/autumn beanie when those cool breezes blow. The hat is deliberately designed around the colourful yarn to display its beautiful changing colours.

YARN USED

The Boho Breeze Hat is crocheted using two yarns, both yarns are Hayfield Bonus DK yarns by Sirdar. The main colour has a lovely phased colour effect, it is a new yarn called Breeze and the contrast colour is simply a bold purple, one of 60 colours available.

I love how the variegated yarn changes colour quite quickly, displaying it's lovely rainbow coloured tones, and of course, the best contrast is always a darker colour, I chose purple not only because it is my favourite, but it complements one of the many colours in the variegated yarn. These yarns are 100% acrylic however to my surprise they are softer in texture than other budget-priced acrylics.
