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.
