Finished this about an hour ago. In love with this yarn. I made a scarf for the friend out of the same yarn, so now she has a set!!!

This was the scarf i made for her awhile back.




Thanks for looking!

EDIT: Unfortunately, the coworker i made this for didnt want a slouchy beanie. She wanted a slouchy beret but didnt tell me. Put a Etsy page up for it but meh, its just sitting here.  Embarrassed

It makes it even more fun, doesn't it?  Plus, it makes it more fun for the recipient, too!  What's the yarn you used?  It's really pretty.

Thanks!  It is lovely yarn...I thought it was hand spun!  I am going to check it out.

What color loom are you using?  I used the green one this weekend and both of the hats I made are a little snug on me (maybe I just have a big head Grin)....I am sure they will stretch out a bit...I used the green loom, not the largest one, which in my set, is yellow.

For adults i use the biggest loom. The hats tend to shrink a bit Ive noticed so they seem to fit everyone so far.

I love the colors in the second picture! My friends hats have that chunky look to them and she just makes them pretty long. Ive found that around 12inches does the trick for mine. You may have to do them longer for chunkier hats. Smiley
