Wow, November is almost over and it’s finally cold here! It’s the end of November and it’s just barely coat weather. Give me a month and I’ll be complaining about how cold it is. 🙂

Speaking of the end of November, I have to work this week at a retail place, on Black Friday, so I hope if you’re out shopping you are super awesome to the sales people because sometimes it sucks.
Anyway, originally I was going to writing a pattern featuring bulky yarn, because Charisma was on sale last week and I have, uh, some. 🙂 But as I was working up pretty much this same pattern I didn’t like it, it didn’t wear right. So instead I randomly selected colors from my stash of some Vanna’s Choice and made this fun slouchy hat. I’ve seen a few photos of hats like this come through my FB feed and I really wanted to make one. Funny enough, these happen to be the exactly same colors I used for the last Willow hat I made. Considering all the yarn I have, what are the odds!Ravelry link
Anyway, I hope you quite enjoy this pattern. Don’t forget to enter my yarn giveaway!

Notes:

  • This pattern is written for adult size but I’ve made notes so you could make it smaller. Use this chart to figure out how to adjust the size of the hat. You just need to make sure that the finished stitch count (after all the increases) is an even number
  • The spike sc/ sc rows are a bit more dense than the hdc rows, so they might wear tighter on your head (I know that’s how it feels on mine) but this is pretty simply solved by wetting the hat a bit and stretching those rows and allowing it to dry, basically wet blocking.
  • For this pattern, you only need to work the spike sc into the previous row.
  • The hat is worked in the round, with a slip st into the first st from the last, but the band is worked row by row, with a turn at the beginning.
  • Color A is pink, color B is gray and color C is green.
  • You don’t have to fasten off after each color change, just carry your yarn.
  • The ch 1 on some rows does not count as a stitch.
  • The hat looks super cute as a slouch, so if you want you don’t need create the band.

Fasten off, weave in your ends. Add tassels, if you want. Or braids or pom poms.

Also optional are the tassels you can add to the ends on the band. I just ran the pieces of the yarn through the corners rather than a separate piece of yarn but it’s much like this.
