So some very lovely slouchy hats have been popping up on the boards and I think I'd like to get in on the action!  Anyone else  up for this?  I think it should be a fairly easy project, good for anyone wanting to learn circ needles or dpn's!  Plus, I'd love to see what all you creative craftsters can come up with.

Knit and tonic's Le Slouch is a great pattern:

I'm also loving tragicheroine's big blue beret:

Of course this in no way means you should stick strictly to these, but they are very good starting points!

....so who wants in?

To Knit or not to Knit...Is that a Question?

Well, I think that is a great idea.  Not making any promises but I may join with the Sea Urchin hat from Top Stitch Girl

I really love this pattern and need a new hat with my haircut, but don't know what yarn to use.

hooray!  i'm glad you're all joining so that it will actually motivate me to work on mine.  i'll be casting on shortly...after i clean my room so i have some space to work in (sounds silly but its true).

i think i'm going to do mine in some sugar n cream...any thoughts on working it in unforgiving cotton?

That type of cotton might make it really stiff... not to mention "scratchy"-- in my experience.

that's what i was concerned about.  i think maybe i'll first do one in some other yarn like simply soft, and try out the cotton after i already have one that i am happy with so i don't get discouraged Cheesy

I want to make this type of hat for an old friend of my mom who was just diagnosed with breast cancer. She will be going through one year of chemo before she gets a bilateral mastectomy, and then follow with another year of chemo.

I want to knit her a hat, and already bought some thin (and soft) cotton yarn to make a beanie. Now that I'm looking at this type of hat, does anyone have any recommendations on how to adapt the pattern (I will be knitting with about a size 4 circ)

Is this even possible?

Most of the patterns are pretty simple, so it isn't very hard to change. You need to figure out how many stitches to cast on for the band, and increase every third stitch like in most of the patterns. That should keep your hat a similar shape and dimension.
