A Slouch Hat

14 Mar

My 9yo was the photographer this morning.  I started and finished this hat this past weekend.

Pattern:  Meret – free download on Ravelry

Yarn:  Stitch Nation Bamboo Ewe in color Mermaid (a little less than one skein)

Size:  Medium with one extra repeat to make it extra slouchy.

Needles:  Size 7

I love this pattern!  It’s easy to memorize and easy to un-knit when you screw up.  🙂  I think the next one will be extra extra slouchy with two extra repeats.  It will be nice to put your hair up inside when walking the dog first thing in the morning.  Mia, my oldest daughter, is looking for just such a hat so it may be gifted to her.

I had no problems with my shoulder while knitting this.  I took frequent breaks and tried to only knit for 10-15 minutes at a time.  I did stretches before and after the sessions.  Hopefully I’m on the mend…

    Stretching is the key before and after!
