Knitted Slouchy Hat with Cables

slouchy hat

You know what I love about knitting hats? You get the payoff of a completed project incredibly fast– it’s instant craftification! Check out this free slouchy hat knitting pattern from Azure Knits.

I casted on on Thursday night before Christmas and kind of worked on it here and there over the holiday. Then on Monday night I devoted some serious time to it and finished it that night. Awesome! I did notice that as I was decreasing that I made a couple of mistakes, but I think once I wear the hat it won’t be that noticeable. Also, I don’t have a small head, so the hat is not that slouchy on me. That’s OK though — I prefer more of a beanie over a really baggy look anyway.

I followed the tip of using size 11 needles to make the hat a little slouchier. I also used the recommended yarn in the pattern — Cascade Yarns Baby Alpaca Chunky in Ecru. It was so unbelievably soft…Like a kitty, as my mom would say.
