It wasn’t finished as quickly as I’d hoped but my Quick Cable Slouch Hat took me a little over two weeks to knit. But in all fairness, most of it was completed last Saturday.
I used a US 8 and a US 11 to make the hat like the notes suggest and it actually fits my head (which is abnormally big, I think) and has good slouch to it. I blocked it on Sunday and I was out of town most of this week. So here it is finally.
I used a surprise ball of Patons Shetland Chunky Tweed. There are two more where that came from and it was such a treat. I was borrowing some things from Jenn and when I looked in the bag, I was surprised to find yarn! It really did make my day.
Here is the hat as I blocked it on a dinner plate.
This one is going to my mom who requested a hat like this a while ago and my first attempt didn’t fit the best. We’re going to swap and I’ll take that first hat and give it to a deserving child or a woman with a really small head.
