Free crochet granny stripe hat pattern

This crochet granny stripe hat was a request from my daughter. Now that she is a busy college student, she looks for no fuss styles. This is great for those messy hair days. Who has the time? She wakes up showers, grabs her tea and throws on her hat to leave. She is difinately her mother’s daughter, lol. After weeks of putting it off, I finally got around to crocheting it for her. I must say, she is a happy camper now.

We will be using the  granny stitch to make this slouchy crochet beanie. If you can make a granny square then you can make this hat. It is almost exactly the same. Don’t worry about getting stuck. I also include the written pattern & video tutorial to follow along. 

I used “I Love This Yarn” by Hobby Lobby. It is one of my favorite yarn. I don’t know what they do to it, but it is so soft and works up beautifully. One skein of yarn was more than enough for this free crochet granny stripe hat pattern.

Weekly Inspiration For The Crochet Entrepreneur | Getting Off Track

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellu

There will be times while on our journey in life where situations will occur that may cause us to get off track. You know the feeling, when you just don’t feel right but can’t put your finger on it. It may have been that one situation that threw you for a loop. It may have caused you to get bent all out of shape, as the old folks would say putting you in a tizzy.

How can we get back on track when stuff happens? What can we do about some of those situations? When we take time to contemplate about whatever has occurred,  there are numerous ways to get our act together. Ranging from getting professional help to using plain old common sense. If you stick your unprotected hand in a fire, you will get burnt. There are always consequences for every action or inaction.

Now, what can we do when life gets in the way? What are some things that tend to get you off track?  By not wanting to deal with situations that cause us to be distracted or upset we tend to procrastinate. We end up sabotaging ourselves. PROCRASTINATION is just one of the biggest enemies that we let defeat us. Making the decision that you want to make a difference to get back on track is a start. Getting from point A to point B is all personal to you. How fast or slow you want to get there and the amount of energy you are willing to put in is up to you. There are many paths to getting back on track.  

Life is full of distractions, time limitations and family commitments. For example, what would you do when that toxic family member or friend does something to get  on your last nerve? Your creative spirit is in the dumps. We all have that one person that turns everybody and everything upside down, think about how you will respond.

Just putting a little thought ahead of time and having a plan in place on setting boundaries could be a start. It is up to you how you will react to different situations. 

“ Nobody can hurt me without my  permission.”  Mahatma Gandhi
