Hermosa Slouch - Free Pattern Friday!

Good morning! It's Free Pattern Friday! Want to see what we have today?

I'm releasing my newest design, the Hermosa slouch, today! I have to say, that this is one of my favorite hats. It's warm, snuggly, and cute!

I just love the color combinations that my testers chose. Look at this pretty one from Alecia Goodman.

Today only, I'd like to offer you this pattern for free! Here's how you can get it:
Go to the pattern in my Ravelry store. Add it to your cart and use code: Hermosa. Please make sure it shows up as free before checking out. :)

Code expires tonight at midnight PST.

I also love how this hat pairs so perfectly with the Hermosa Scarf and Wristers! It's my go-to for cold and rainy days. I've discovered that for as much as I crochet, I don't have may matching sets!

If you'd like to have your own matching set, the Hermosa scarf and Hermosa wristers are on sale through this weekend!

I can't wait to see what you all make!
