I have fallen a little behind on blogging about my finished crochet projects, but one of the items I have recently completed is a slouchy hat. I have actually wanted to make one of these hats (which go by several different names) for quite awhile now, so I was originally planning to make this project with a different yarn. But then, I won a prize in Book-wyrn Knits' birthday/wedding celebration blog contest which included some super soft, pretty purple yarn (Thanks again, Nicole!). And well, I just had to use it for this project. :-)
(my apologies for any gross medicine-caked eyes/eyelashes that may be visible)
So, for my slouchy hat I used size E, F, and G hooks, with Knit Picks Comfy (fingering-weight) yarn in "Lilac" and this Super Slouch Hat pattern. Of course, since the yarn I used is much thinner than the worsted yarn this pattern calls for, I had to modify things a bit. I basically just doubled the number of rows on everything and increased to 88 stitches. I probably could have increased a little more, and definitely would if I was making this for anyone else, but mine is plenty stretchy for my little head. I really like how the hat turned out; it is perfect for containing my always wild hair.
