Never thought I’d like it slouchy

Slouchy hats have blossomed everywhere lately, and I always thought Bah, not for me.

Then my sil asked if I could make her one. Of course, I love hints on what they’d like for Xmas. :-)

During our little shopping outing earlier this week, I saw a Phildar store in Grand’Place, and of course “had to look”. Bought some cheap acrylic in a nice pink shade for a Roselette for a niece (yes acrylic does have a few good sides for kids garments that need to be washed easily). And got 2 differents kinds of grey yarn with this slouchy hat in mind.

Now I have just finished it (took me only a few hours really, and I had to rip and restart a few times) and am in love. I may even have to make another one for myself !!!
The intial pattern is the flower center slouch hat, which I heavily modified to suit both the yarns I used and the look I wanted.
I’ll most probably post my mods either here or on Ravelry soon.

Oh, and we babysat the recipient of the little elf hat yesterday, and I sneaked a bad picture of her wearing it. Shh, I hope they don’t come and see my blog ! :-P
