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 1: Start a granny square- ch 3, 2 dc in 3 ch from hook, 2 ch, 3 dc in same space, 2 ch, 3 dc in same space, 2 ch, 3 dc, 2 ch, sl st to join
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
Row 11: Begin row from the corner space created by sl st in Row 10 (ch 3, 2 dc in sp), ch 1, 3 dc in next ch sp, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, * sk 1 ch sp, 3 dc, ch 1, sk 1 ch sp, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1* repeat between *s 2 times, sk 1 ch sp, 3 dc, ch 1, sk 1 ch sp, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, sl st in top of ch to join
Row 12- 25: Continue granny square pattern around (alternate 3 dc in each ch sp, ch 1). Do not add any stitches/clusters at the corners, you are now working in the round, effectively.

Row 27-32: ch 1, sc around, sl st into first st of row to join
