A New Year ... A New Hat!
Happy 2014! And what better way to celebrate than with a new hat! Last year I put a moratorium on making myself any new hats - I spend a large part of the winter in Phoenix, where hats are seldom needed. However, suddenly my hats all seem old and worn or have just disappeared! I recently found this crocheted slouch hat by Liz on her Crochet in Color blog and fell in love with it - you can find the pattern here.
I used Lion Brand's Amazing in the Glacier Bay colorway and it took a skein and a half. I also took Liz's suggestion to move down one hook size when working on the ribbing.
Okay, I know it's a slouch hat but I don't have that much hair so it really, really slouched! I like it better with the ribbing turned up.
Happy Creating! Deborah
