Granny Stitch Slouch Hats

Green, peach and white Granny Stitch Slouch Hat

After finishing two blankets, I was ready to tackle something smaller and more immediately rewarding. So, like any modern crafter, I opened Pinterest and got to searching.  I came upon this free pattern and gave it a go.  The pattern was relatively easy.  The ribbing might be challenging for a beginner, but it was not impossibly difficult.

On my head, the hats wear like a slouch hats.  If you have a larger head they might fit more like classic winter hats.  I think they turned out cute.  Now to decide if I keep them or give them away!  They work up so quick that maybe I can just make a bunch.

Just a photo of me to show how it fits

I got my pattern from a link on Pinterest. Here's the link again.  The original pattern called for more colors, but I liked the look of three.  Also the more colors you add, the more ends you have to sew in when you're finished.

The first hat I tried with this pattern (not pictured) was a total fail.  It was a very cute pink, white and green one, but I didn't carry the yarn up through the pattern properly, and when I cut the yarn to sew it at the end, I picked the wrong spot and it all just unraveled.  Talk about FRUSTRATING!  Oh well, I decided to give it another go and I'm glad I did.
