This past weekend, between fighting a chest cold, going to a soccer game, and the usual million boring but somehow necessary things that fill our days… I found time to make this!
It’s a Felicity hat, and it’s for my youngest sister. She’s quite the seamstress, and she’s altering some of my pants for me, so I had to thank her somehow! The real star of this slouchy hat is the back though. Let’s take a look:
So slouchy! So red! These pics were taken pre-blocking, as I had to grab the light while it lasted. The original pattern runs a bit small for big-headed folk, so I did do a couple easy changes. For needle sizes I bumped up to 8s and 9s, and I cast on 80, ending the increases with knit 13, make 1 (140 sts). It’ll make sense once you download this great FREE pattern. I used I Love This Cotton, which is one of the softest cottons available locally. I keep petting it as it blocks on the counter – it’s too luscious to resist!
