**4 April 16 : I've added modified directions for DK yarn (my new love)**
So my daughter, Ana, wanted a slouchy hat to match her current hippie style… four baby dreadlocks and all! After more than several bazillion variations, this is the final version graciously approved and worn daily by Ana AND her BFF’s! Not a Rasta? Then join me in the super cute & hipster DK version :)
This is an advanced beginner project as it involves some simple shaping and a change in direction for the faux knit ribbing. It's just challenging enough for beginners and more experienced stitchers will just love how fun they are to make. Plus, there is plenty of yarn left to make a matching I Heart Coffee Cozy!
Perfect for giving! I've totally been making matching sets and putting them away for last minute gifts. Perfect for keeping! I get TONS of compliments on the Rainbow version I wear every day ^_^
As usual, I've also included plenty of full color pics to help along the way AND the variations for a Rainbow or 7-Stripe version and 3 color version. Both are perfect for Team Colors and other groups! Of course, it looks great in variegated yarns, as well, so the yarn does all the color changing for you (my fave).
When laid out flat, it measures about 11.5" across at the widest part and about 11.5" long with the ribbing.
