Like Zuleika's slouch hat! Friggin awesome pattern!
Most beanies look like crap on me because my hair is too big and curly. Hubby likes to tell me how large and alien-like my head looks in beanies. Sweet guy. But this slouch hat has enough room to balance out my curls and not give me the dreaded triangle hair. Its hubby approved.
I experimented with different hook sizes to get different size hats. This blue one fits me best. I used an I hook and less than a skein of TLC Heathers (ww). I started it on the subway going to work and finished it the same night.
The cabling pattern is easier to see with this tan hat. I'm petrified of crochet cables but these were really easy to understand. I felt like a doofus for not trying before.
This is the smallest of the three I made since it was made with an H hook. Fits great as a beanie or a perfectly Piper sized slouch hat.
This black one is the biggest I made, using a J hook. This one is way too big for my head. My friend Desiree really liked this one best for herself though, because she's got a massive amount of hair that she could easily tuck into the hat.
Its nearly impossible to see the cabling pattern with this one, sorry. Getting home after dark means a lot less natural light for me to work with when taking pics.
And just because I can't think of a proper or funny way to end this post, I'll leave you with this gem:
