slouchy puffy hat
I completed the slouchy hat for my 17-yr-old niece but it turned out much too small. It fitted the girl-child perfectly though.
So I made another one.... and it fits her perfectly and she loves it.
I'll be making another one still, for myself. Love the look.
I used this pattern, with DK acrylic yarn from my stash. I used a I/5.5cm hook. I had to add two extra rows after row 5 to get the larger hat.
I used the puff stitch for the first time. The trick with this one is to make it very loose, especially with non-stretchy yarn, otherwise it's a pain to work.
I also love the very simple finish edging. Will work with many patterns/designs.
