I've been making so many slouchy berets that I'm sick of it! I wanted to make a baggy one that would keep my ears warm and i actually succeeded. i used homespun and it only took a few hours, i was impressed, I'm now addicted to this yarn. Here are my macbook taken pictures.. so sorry about the qualities and the non contrasting background!





And now for the pattern..
I've never written down any of my patterns before so I'm sorry for any confusions.  It is a pretty strait forward hat not increases or decreases after the first few rows.  I would recommend this for beginners.

I used Homespun yarn by Lion brand and a size J hook.

Start by making 5 ch and ss to form ring

row 1: 9 dc in ring.  join.
row 2: 2 dc in every st.  join.
row 3: 2 dc in every st. join.
row 4: *1 dc, 2 dc*. join.
row 5: 1 dc in every stitch. join.
---(I then repeated row 5 11 times and repeated it 4 more rows in the green yarn and once more back in the yellow making.. so row 5 basically goes for rows 5-21)
-- you can also make your hat longer or shorter depending on how many times you repeat row 5
row 22: 1 sc in every stitch. join.

Very cute!  Just the right amount of slouch.  I love slouchy hats, especially the ones in Japanese crochet and knitting books, but mine turn out all weird and baggy.

I too am totally upset that they are taking the servers down to fix things. Why can't they just let things stay broken? I don't care if I can't move due to lag or if quests are bugged. If I leave my room my mom may make me get a job.

I like this quite a bit.  Good color choice.  I like the slouchy-non-beret-ness.

ZOMG! I love it so much! Do you ever think you'll share how you made this delicious goodness? I was watching Elf today, and at the end of the movie when Zooey Deschanel is singing she's wearing a white hat and it reminds me of your hat you've made with a poof ball at the end. I loaf your hat!

Me!  Want pattern!  Want to find a way to make it into an earflappish hat too!  Love it!  Want one for me, and DH, and both the tadpoles, my best friends, maybe the next door neighbors, or the whole neighborhood...

(The earflappish hat would just be for DH)

I just finished my last final yesterday!  Good luck and don't post that pattern until they're over!  I'd love to make some for Christmas, but I KNOW how procrastination (and crocheting) kills my grades!!!

WAHOO!  I just found out I maintained my 4.0 this term, and that's WITH obsessive crocheting!!! 

Here's hoping all of you have done just as well, and I can't wait to see that pattern.  I just bought some awesome wool/silk/alpaca blend that will look mucho awesome-o as this hat.

AHHHH! It has returned! It's so gosh darn cute, but it seriously looks knit, and I hate knitting. (It hates me back, so no worries.) I don't know if I have enough skill to figure it out on my own (I'm still a newb in my opinion), but if I do I will tell you how for-sure!

P.S. I wish I could keep a 4.0 with obsessive crocheting! I am yealous! I'm half-way through with my fourth year of college and I'm dying for it to end- good grades or not! Shocked

yeah, it does look knit, but I'm going to work on figuring it out without knitting (I've never even tried knit, tho I'd like to....) Can you tell if the little bob thing on the end is a pom pom, or do you think its just like part of the hat... I can't figure that one out...

Oh, and about 4.0... I can't keep a 4.0 even without obsessive crochet... LOL... I'm in my 3rd year of college, and obsessive crocheting and my grades don't mix... I wish there was a degree in crochet, tho LOL

I'm only in my second year, and I have good incentive to keep my average up - the world's greatest scholarship.

Did you guys ever see that car that was crocheted by an art major for her senior project?  That'd be a heck of a major if you could crochet all the time...

The biggest piece of advice I can give anyone for good grades and crocheting (I'm hijacking, I'm sorry, please please forgive me!) is this:  when you are trying to brainstorm for a huge paper or anything else, crochet with a pad of paper and pen next to you.  I thought up the greatest points when I was crocheting, and it was really easy to just quickly jot it down in between stitches.  Then typing up the paper itself was easy-peasy.

I crochet in my classes, it actually helps me concentrate! Maybe I have ADD or something, but it really works. I'm a journalism major, so the most school-related things I get to do with crochet is writing stories about my hobby for the newspaper.

I too though, wish there was a degree in crochet. We'd graduate the top of our classes.

Outofthequestion, I think the pom at the end is indeed a pom, it's just really long instead of small and fluffy. I hope that made sense.

Aww... crap, it was knitted.  You could crochet it too, though...

Still, it's pretty durn awesome.  We should do something like that with a swap someday, except make it be a non-swap.  We all send it to one person who assembles the world's largest scarf or something.   Roll Eyes

AWESOME! thanks for posting that, I thought it had just been sitting here not getting used this whole time.. I can only hope others have been using it too.  It's great timing too because I've been putting together lots of knitting patterns, so this definitly makes me feel better about spending so much time doing it.

Hi,
Thanks for the pattern. I have never really had a serious try at learning crochet before but I have tonnes of yarn to get thru and decided to give this a try.

I used totally the wrong thickness wool though ( double knit rather than chunky) and also the wrong size hook. But hey it was just to practise to see if I could get the hang of crochet.

Anyhow it turned out well. Obviously smaller than it should but hope you don't mind I have modified it to use as a cover for the jar containing my knitting needles, Im gonna crochet some flowers to fancy it up a little.

I reckon done in the size I practised it would be a good way of using odds and ends up to make baby hats. If its ok I will make some for my local hospitals Special Care Baby Unit for premmie babies, will wait for your permission to use pattern first.

Many thanks
Trina x
