I am a great admirer of the slouchy hat trend we are presently enjoying. I began last week to make up a quick hat with some leftover black stash yarn. After copious amounts of ripping and actually finishing an abomination of a hat, I gave up and went to work for a week.
I had been bested by the slouchy hat. Upon reflection, I decided that I didn't like the first slouchy beret because I looked like a victorian housemaid. I then embarked on the "less slouch is more journey".
I found a cute hat on the Anthropologie website that would be great if it wasn't $38 for an acrylic hat. It was a chunky hat and my yarn was worsted weight, but other than that it was easy enough to try to replicate.
I swatched, calculated and cast on while watching my 49ers lose (surprise). I'm happy enough with the resulting not so slouchy hat. A nice addition to my small hat collection.
