FO- Le Slouch!
Yay for the slouchy hat!

I love Patton's SWS! And the seed stitch didn't take as long as I was thinking it would. It only took 3, maybe 4 days to finish.
One more:

And the pattern is here:

About SWS...does anyone else have the same problem I do and have trouble scooping up all the yarn? It seems that I split the yarn often, but maybe that's just because I use pointy metal needles and knit tightly? I really need to learn to ease up on the tension, I think.

Anyway, I hope you like!

I really love the SWS. I was just thinking I wish they made it in solid colors. Your hat is great!

How cute!! Looks like Big-Haired Woman over here (speaking of myself, of course) could wear that hat (this is a weird way to compliment you...sorry)!!

It really is cute! I love the design!!!

That is a great hat, you did a wonderful job. I can't wait till I knit that clean and in three to four hours. Wow!

I've never tried the SWS by Patons, I'll take a look. Is the pattern for your hat on their website or is this available elsewhere. I wouldn't mind trying my hand at it.
