EMMA WELFORD DESIGNS
Shock Star Slouch PDF
We’re all guilty of impulse buying a skein of gorgeous hand-dyed yarn with no plan in mind. If you’ve got such a skein of DK weight in your stash, consider the Shock Star Slouch by Emma Welford. Designed to showcase speckled, multi-colored yarn, the Shock Star Slouch will corral your yarn into a slouchy textured hat that shows off all those colors--the wilder, the better!
