Make it Breezy: Boho Bling Slouchie

modeling a mid-summer night's slouchy

those projects that take about a million times longer than you thought, lucky readers?

For me, this pattern was just that – hopefully meaning that, as a result, it should be easy breezy, smooth flamingo floaty sailin for you.

But it was worth it – boho bling is like my style mantra, think the perfect accessory for maxi skirts and beauty cardigans for cool summer nights.

I know this pattern defies the rules – using a G hook with lace weight mohair yarn, switching from granny square to working in the round – but it’s a fun single skein project and I super love this hat that resulted.

You can find a nicely formatted version of this pattern on Ravelry!. As always, thanks a million to those of you that have supported me, it really means a lot.

Row 2: ch 3, 2 dc in sp, *ch 1, 3 dc in next sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same sp* repeat between *s 2 more times, 3 dc in next sp, ch 2, sl st in 3rd st of starting ch to join

Row 3 – 8 : continue granny square pattern around: 3 dc in each sp, ch between dc clusters. At the corners, you will continue to make 2 clusters of 3 dc separated by 2 ch in each.

Row 9: Begin row as normal (alternate 3 dc, ch 1 across to the next corner) then make this pattern in the ch 2 sp of the corner: 3 dc, ch, 3 dc, ch, 3dc, ch. Repeat on next 2 corners. At last corner: 3 dc, ch, 3 dc, ch, sl st to join in top of starting chain

Row 10: Begin row from the corner space created by sl st in Row 9 (ch 3, 2 dc in sp). ch 1, 3 dc in next ch sp, ch 1, *sk 1 ch sp, 3 dc, ch, 3 dc, ch, 3 dc, ch, 3 dc, ch* repeat between *s 6 more times, treating corner ch sp like an edge (only 3 dc in each). sk 1 ch sp, 3 dc, ch, 3 dc, ch, sl st into top of ch
