Once my family discovered I had a new crafty skill, the requests started. This one came from my 11-year-old. He doesn’t ask for much, how could I say no?
I found an awesome video tutorial from Sheep & Stitch for this slouchy hat. I even used the same yarn she did. There were certainly multiple cast-ons and some ripped out stitches, but ultimately, it came out better than I’d hoped!
This was my first time knitting a hat, knitting in the round, using circular needles, and using DPNs. I had to take a pic of the DPN action:
The pattern is a textured rib and I love the way it looks.
Mr. Road has requested his own slouchy hat next.
