I tend to decrease a lot over the last few rows (decrease every two stitches or so), and then I gather the rest.

I'm glad that helped!

Just to elaborate, I tend to make a headband about 64st long and then when you want to increase you knit to and increase one!

I'm sure your knitting isn't that bad. All you need is to practice. Slouchy hats really aren't that hard... you start with a band for a basic hat and then once the band at the bottom is finished you just increase a lot and knit until it is long enough. That was probably a really bad explanation, but that is how I do it.

This is my latest creation: The Runaway Hat. I call it that because I started with a basic pattern but didn't follow it all the way through and it sort of evolved as I made it. The pattern sort of ran away from me and the hat got a bit out of hand. I used a purple, worsted weight, acrylic yarn and I forget what size needles.

I tend to mostly knit on the bus or in tiny little spurts of time, so the hat took forever and there are different bits in it from different days, so it doesn't really look like one cohesive pattern. The first and second half of the hat look like two separate hats that got squished together into one. I think it turned out pretty well anyways. I'm not sure if I like it enough to keep it though, so tell me what you think!

This may seem like a silly question, but I need help determining what size of needle to use. All my knitting needles don't say like size 7 or anything, they just have the width in millimetres. On most patterns though, it says size 7 (just an example) and doesn't specify the millimetre width. Is size 7 the same as 7 mm?

It looks amazing!!!
Does it fit well? My problem with hats like that is that I follow the pattern but after wearing it a few days it will stretch and not stay on my head anymore!

hmm, it's somewhat like that, except without the high neckline, it really just comes across along the bustline, and seems sort of pinched/twisted in the middle.
