Quick Slouch Hat

I have wanted a slouch hat ever since I saw Tatiana Maslany wear one in the first season of Orphan Black (if you haven’t had a chance to check out this show, I highly recommend it)…. so when winter gear came out this season I snagged the first cute beanie that I found. Not exactly what I wanted, but close. Then I saw this tutorial a few weeks ago and decided that Easton needed one too – beanies for everyone! For my first hat, I decided to upcycle an old sweater – I didn’t see myself ever wearing this style again and the ‘material’ screamed hat (or boot socks): 12-hatsEaston wasn’t as impressed with this hat as much as the one I whipped up yesterday so I tried it on myself and was happy to find that it fits me, too! The sweater knit is pretty stretchy (and I used smaller seams) so it’s not too surprising that it fits me as well. As for the sewing, it may have taken me an entire 10 minutes to make this – I did skip the band and used the finished ribbing at the bottom edge of the sweater which made it go even faster.

It snowed today – guess what I’ll be sporting when I venture outside?

    I’m busy finishing off one that I’m knitting for my 16 year old son, at his request. I used Cascade 220 Paints in an orange colorway; the free pattern can be found on Ravelry under the name Main Street Slouchy Hat.
