pattern: Aveline Slouchy Hat by Jennifer Tallapaneni, at Pieknits.
yarn: Knit Picks Swish Superwash (100% superwash wool; 100 m/110 y; Coast Gray; 1.5 skeins)
made for: me
needles: sizes 6 and 9
I love this pattern so much, I want to marry it. I cast on during my flight to Nebraska, I worked about two-thirds during the rehearsal for a Catholic wedding (man do they ever have a lot of stuff to do), and finished it off before even getting out of bed on New Year's Day.
The yarn had me barely off-gauge, and there wasn't much I could do on the road. It still fits, but if (no, when!) I make another, I'll go down a needle size instead of up.
It's easy on the hair. It also just so happens to match my stylin' Beatsbroke t-shirt.
A look at the decreases:
So. Barack Obama may have won the Democratic Iowa Caucus, but do you see him wearing a hat this cute? I don't think so!
