Valentines Striped Slouch Beanie – Free Crochet Pattern

Valentines Striped Slouch Beanie – Free Crochet Pattern

This Valentines Striped Slouch Beanie is the perfect addition to your February wardrobe and I am so excited to bring it to you in time for Valentines day! This is a fantastic project for crocheters of any skill set, and it works up in one evening!

As a member of the heart community I use any excuse to spread awareness for Congenital Heart Defects, especially because so many people are still unaware of the prevalence of heart defects. According to the CDC nearly 1 in 100 children are born with a CHD. In fact 40,000 babies are born every year with a CHD in the US alone. Congenital Heart Defect awareness week is February 7-14th every year. Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays – especially because its the last day of CHD awareness week.
