So i found this sweet sweet new yarn store by me and it's got way more than i'm used to and what really caught my eye was what i found below. and very hat-worthy.

This was supposed to be based off of the slouchy puff tute we all love, but its actually completely different because i changed more than i was originally going to because the yarn is so chunky.
also, i was using a P hook, i think.





the back doesn't usually sit like that, but i don't really feel like taking another picture.
thanks for looking!

Nice job!  It looks so warm and soft.  I wouldn't have thought bulky would be a good choice.  But, now I know otherwise and I'm going to be looking for some to do a hat in!  So thanks for sharing!  Did the banding happen automatically or did you use different yarns?

well it was an airdyed yarn so it just naturally banded like that.

the yarn was like..stripes of three colors at a time. then one was dropped and another added and so on. and thats why like you can see more or less red and then more or less green and such

I finally started to make a slouchy hat because I have a friend who asked if I could and I figured I could, it didn't seem hard, but I just wanted to see. Well I like how it is turning out so far except that the puffs don't seem very big, I think I needed to use a softer yarn I just used super saver since its practice.
