Free Crochet Pattern: Diamonds & Gems Slouchy

Diamonds & Gems Slouchy Crochet Pattern

This week I want to share the last crochet pattern in the Diamonds and Gems Collection. The slouchy is a coordinate for the Diamonds & Gems Fingerless Gloves and Boot Cuffs and the Diamonds and Gems Cowl

Like the other pieces, the slouchy is designed in worsted weight yarn and works up very quickly. I used three colors but you can use as many as you like and make a dent in that stash we all have 😉  The slouchy is a wonderful fashion accessory but if you prefer a beanie, just reduce the number of side repeats.
