52 hats :: 5 + 6 - Two of a kind
My fifth and sixth hat were two variations on the same pattern, a slouchy one and a normal fit.
The first one had me knitting on the edge. This was all the yarn I had left to finish it... (and that was after cheating on decreases on the top: I skipped a few rows I should have knit to make it flatter).
Anyway, It actually turned out nice, I think. I added two rows of YO and two rows purls to give it a bit more movement and texture and that worked out great.
I liked that texture so much I decided to use it on the next hat too. Same yarn, different color. Shorter brim and no increasing after the brim, but the rest is the same. I thought I'd like this one better, but it seems slouchy hats are growing on me cause I prefer the slouchy one.
Which one do you like best? And what are you up to these days? Any hats?
