Gridlines Slouchy Hat Crochet Pattern

This free crochet slouchy hat pattern is all about gridlines of love.

In the magical world of many well known saints, shamans, and mystics from the past, seeing grids of beautiful neon lights was a commonly documented occurrence.

Imagine a stunning desert valley surrounded by snow capped winter peaks. On every side of this gorgeous bowl, mountains rise tall and majestic against a cloud covered sky. As your breath forms a soft cloud in front of you, you pull a warm crochet slouch hat down more firmly over your frozen ears.

Looking across the valley basin, you notice a distinct and beautiful pattern – gridlines. Formed of aurora borealis type lights, this grid covers everything. When you look to your right, you can see the magical lights traveling up and over the regal mountain peaks. When you look to your left, you notice they also continue on infinitely in that direction.

Consumed by overwhelming gratitude, you suddenly realize that you’re witnessing, first hand, the fabric of our being. The building blocks of the material world.

With awe and inspiration, you quietly whisper, “It’s the love! It’s EVERYWHERE.”

This cute crochet slouch hat pattern features worsted weight (4) yarn and 3 different sizes – so you can outfit every important person in your life in true LOVE.

This pattern is written in crochet only, but if you’re looking for a sweet free knit slouch hat pattern, check out my Peaks and Valleys Beanie.
