The Faya slouch hat is an easy crochet pattern that can be completed in just a few hours and makes a lovely, stylish hat for those cool fall days. Continue reading to find out why the Faya slouch hat is special to me and how you can support the #HatNotHate movement.
Lion Brand Yarn has teamed up with STOMP Out Bullying to launch an anti-bullying campaign that educates people on how to reduce and prevent bullying. Read more about STOMP Out Bullying on their website.
The goal of this campaign is to craft blue hats and increase awareness about the impact bullying has on children and teens by proudly wearing these blue hats on World Day of Bullying Prevention, October 1st, 2018.
To make the Faya slouch hat, I used Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice. This yarn is soft, has great definition and comes in many beautiful colors. I chose the color Dusty Blue, but any Lion Brand yarn in any shade of blue can be used for this campaign.
Sadly, I was a victim of bullying throughout most of my Elementary school years. I know how cruel children can be and how being bullied can have a lasting affect on the victims. For that reason alone, I have chosen to home-school my own children. We will be doing our part by wearing the blue hats, not just on the first day of the month, but for the whole month of October, to help raise awareness of this great cause.
