Stay WARM this winter with the Arctic Waves Slouch!!
The Arctic Waves Slouch is the perfect combo of "slouch" hat, "brimmed" hat, & "earflap" hat! The brim starts & ends near the ears, so there is no extra bunching at the back of the neck. With the added ties to the corners of the brim, you can tie it on to keep your ears nice & warm! The "waves" are created with cable stitches, so it makes the hat nice & warm for those cold "arctic" winds! And the 2 colors make the "waves" POP which adds an eye-catching appeal of texture & dimension!
The Arctic Waves Slouch comes in all sizes: Adult, Child, & Baby!
Don't be afraid to make this hat if you have never tried cables before - I have included 2 videos on how to crochet the cables & how to change colors!
A BIG THANK YOU to EVERYONE that made suggestions for my "Name This Hat" contest on my Facebook page!
Congratulations to Lisa Stamper-Massengale whose suggested name was chosen for the name of this pattern!!
So now, to celebrate a New Pattern Release - I have a 20% off Coupon Code for you all to use when purchasing the Arctic Waves Slouch!!

The Braided Glam Gloves are HERE!! These fingerless gloves are the PERFECT accessory to the Braided Glam Peacoat & the Braided Glam Button Cap!
The braids are featured along the wrist, top of the hand, & around the fingers. The braids give stretch & fit to make the glove super warm. Button accents are along the outer edges of both gloves to give the gloves a crafty look!
It has been a long time waiting & with many suggestions to design accessories to my Braided Glam Peacoat, the wait is final over!
Introducing the Braided Glam Button Cap!
This cap features the same vertical & horizontal braiding that gives the peacoat it's texture & warmth. The cap has wonderful stretch & feels so cozy when worn! The 2 horizontal braids that make up the Brim are accented with buttons, which adds an eye-catching element of personalization to every cap!
The Braided Glam Button Cap is very easy to make, with tutorial pictures showing how to create the braids. The cap is written in 4 sizes: Adult 22", Teen 20", Child 18", & Baby 16" - so every member of the family can enjoy their own cap just in time for winter!
