52 hats :: 2 - Gray Slouch

I have all kinds of ideas for more intrigate patterns, but I kept it simple for my second hat, since I had a lot going on (like packing for a  two month stay on a Caribbean Island)

I personally don't like wearing slouchy hats, but my future son-in-law (who took a slouchy hat I knit a few months ago home with him last Christmas) insures me these are very popular and that I could easily sell them.So, maybe I'll make more, since "designing" (I just make things up as I go) and knitting them is easy and fun.

I did a simple, wide, brim (k4 p2 k2 p2) and knit the rest in stockinette stitch.



(excuse the not so good pictures - I was in a hurry when I took them)

  1. I love knitting simple, slouchy hats. Just knit until you're bored or you stumble across a new pattern, announce that the hat is done and bind off. :)

  3. I like slouchy hats for being able to tuck all my hair up into them! This one is lovely and it looks great on you :)

  4. Exactly! And since everybody loves them I sometimes wonder why I bother making other kinds of hats. Though it would get boring just to make these, I guess...

  5. Oh, I never thought about tucking my hair into them... It never gets that cold in Holland. Though they say it's cold right now, but where I am now (Caribbean) I don't need a hat ;-)
    Thank you!
