Slouchy Hat

In CategoryKnitting

Since Christmas is just right around the corner, I’m unable to reveal some of the things I’ve made for gifts.  You’ll need to check back later for that.

A week ago, I went to a homemade, local craft/art fair downtown.   As always, I went home not only inspired, but with oodles of cool crafting ideas to do myself.

At one booth, there was this lovely young woman selling very unique items using gorgeous textiles (fabrics … you know).  The one item that caught my eye was the slouchy hand-knit hat she was wearing, not selling.  Since she was not a knitter, she paid a friend to make it for her.  I thought that hat looked familiar … it was a pattern that I had, and was put in my queue  to knit sometime later after the holidays.  SCORE!

After the craft fair, I drove directly to the yarn store (cuz that’s how I roll) to get some yarn to make me the slouchy hat.  This is what it looks like.  The twisted cables are super interesting, and look much more difficult than they were to knit.  In two short nights, I had a new hat!

See what I mean about taking crafty diversions to make a few things for me?  Sometimes I think that I’m an ADD crafter/ knitter/ seamstress.  Oh well, I get lots of sh*t done!


P.S.  Once again, lame-o on the ridiculous date stamp!  I think I’ve solved that little problem for future photos.

P.P.S.  Because this hat sits back a bit on the head, my bangs are left untouched.  This is a good thing, because I don’t want to have squashed down bangs like Moe of the “Three Stooges” (been there, done that)!

    I wanted to take that hat off of that adorable girl’s head because I loved it so much. Now I can just steal it from you! (Kidding.) I looooooove it. LOVE.

    It’s so funny that you said that! I admired the hat so much that the girl took it off her head so that I could touch it and admire it. I couldn’t believe my good fortune in having the very same pattern. Like I said in the post … SCORE! Thanks for your sweet comments!

    Also! I totally searched etsy for one of these hats to ask for for Christmas, but got overwhelmed with all of the options. When you have more time, I’ll have to commission you to make me one!!

    Cool! Do you like wool or a combination of wool and synthetic? After Christmas sounds much more do-able. This hat is so, so, unique huh?
