WIP: What Doesn’t This Hat Have?

Welcome to another WIP Wednesday!  I’ve been knitting like a fiend every chance I get to try to crank out orders and work on Christmas knitting and knit a bit more stock for my upcoming show, it’s crazy!

Today I’m sharing with you a hat that was ordered by a friend of mine.  He wanted it to be slouchy, with a pompom, colorful, unique and have earflaps.  What else could you put on a hat?

Definitely a One-Of-A-Kind

I finished up the knitting portion of the hat on Monday evening but as it is not 100% complete I thought it fair to share with you what I have 🙂

mrsmouse's super slouchy beanie!

I want to thank my very generous and hard-working test knitters, mrsmouse and mamatwitch (both Ravelry links) for testing out the pattern and catching any glitches, thanks so much you guys!

My 1st version 🙂

You can find the FREE pattern for the hat on Ravelry here 🙂

and it grows!

Intro:

A simple knit, but also the coolest hat you’ll own!  Knit with plenty of extra slouch and accessorized with a sizable PomPom, what’s not to love about this beanie?  The pattern is written to be very flexible when it comes to yarn choice and just about any worsted weight yarn will do the trick making it perfect for your handspun beauties or that single impulse skein you picked up on a whim.  This would also be a great project to use up scrap yarn or those odd balls and skeins that are lying around dying to be used.  Perfect for beginners and experts alike, the hat is also a quick knit and would make for a great last minute gift for everyone on your list!
