I started a modified version of tragicheroine's pattern.  I had to modify it to fit my gynormous head!  I started out with 72 stitches, but knew it was gonna be too small.  I casted on 90 stitches am now working on the body of the hat with a total of 130 stitches!  I hope to share finished photos by the end of the week.

Everyone's hats look fabulous!

Whew! I have a fairly smallish head, but even I had to CO more sts AND go up a needle size for the ribbing.

I really want one of these slouchy hats, so I think I am going to have to join in and play too....  (I need another knitting project like I need a hole in my head but still......)

I want to make Le' Slouch - going to have to have a rummage in my stash and see what I have that is suitable......

I was staring at all this slouchy hats for a while now, and am ready to get one for myself (also: I'm sick so I have pleeeenty of time), and look its already progressing:



I was thinking of meaking it kinda beanie-style but longer and more baggy. well, in the end that means I do it "freestyle".... let's see what that gets me Smiley

And done!


I'm not a fan of the back of the hat (again, I blame my giant head), but I think I pom-pom will fix it:

I actually like the back of the hat!  But I am the anti-pom...

Ah! I made one of these already for my sister:



But I'm tempted to make a seedstitch one for myself after seeing the lovely one at Fig and Plum.

Ha, I spent thirty seconds staring at the bus sign before I realized that it was a post on the beautiful strawberry-colored hat.

It's too late.

Anyway, I think seedstitch would give it beautiful texture... I say go for it.

I just finished Le Slouch for my daughter and she loves it. The seed stich texture really adds to the look of the hat. Now I'm knitting two more slouches for friends of hers that will be going to France this summer. It's an easy knit and it looks really nice.

Here is mine - modeled by my 4 year old "J"..... 



I couldn't get a decent picture when I was wearing it as I needed a flash and it kept bouncing off the mirror giving loads of glare, so got her to wear it for the pic....

obviously being made for an adult it is far too big for her.......

I used some yarn I had leftover from another project (TLC heathers in a mulbery colour) and used the Le Slouch pattern from knit and tonic, and did it all in stocking stitch...  am very pleased with it.......
