For a couple of years I've tormented my daughter with misshaped hats that were knit flat and seamed up because I was too chicken to try knitting in the round. They all got stuffed into the black hole in her closet never to be seen again.

I finally got the nerve to buy some circular and double pointed needles and give it a try. I had some leftover undyed merino from a 4H living history project that my daughter did last year and I decided to knit myself a new winter hat with it. As soon as the pattern started working up, she saw it and laid claim to "her new hat." "Sure," I thought. She'll never wear it. I finished it last night and today we spent the day visiting an annual craft show at their school where she refused to take it off even in the building. She wore it all day and got lots of compliments! Now her sister has asked for a new winter hat, too. Guess I'll have to wait for my new hat.  Roll Eyes

I used the pattern found here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/slouchy-copy-cat-hat

I knit it on smaller needles and shorter than the pattern called for before starting the decreases to make it unslouchy since that style doesn't look great on me and I figured the only person who would end up wearing it was me. Boy was I wrong about that!
