FO - Slouched Tuva Hat
Wow, I really seem to be cranking out the projects lately!

Last weekend, while out soccering, my daughter's teammate asked me if I'd knit her the hat she asked for during a New Year's tournament.

I sort-of forgot...

So, I did some hunting and found a somewhat easy, yet what I think is a classy, pattern. Chicky's teammate will be playing soccer in college, so I did my homework and found out that one of the school colors is red.

This is the Slouched Tuva Hat, a free pattern available here.



I used 138 yards of Caron Simply Soft in Autumn Red. I knit this on size US 8 needles.




The pattern was simple, simple, simple! I cast on last night and finished this afternoon. Seriously, I could have finished it completely in a few hours' time, but a little thing called "earning a teensy paycheck" got in the way.




The decreases were done in the pattern established, so you don't really get the spiral look.



I will probably make this again. I have enough yarn leftover to make myself one.

But, here's what I think I would do over. I would cast on fewer stitches, but my brain can't handle the math and the adjustments. I'll probably just go down in needle size, resorting to a US 6 or US 5. The hat seems a wee bit big, but it does stay on my head, so it could be that I'm finally "stylish" while wearing it. Who knows.

Anyhoo, it's a fun pattern that I highly recommend!




Thanks for looking at another one of my projects!

I love it! I'll have to add it to my list of "fast and fun, but still cool" patterns to make for friends!

I had it cut at Christmas. Maybe you've seen it when it's been straightened? It usually looks a little longer then.

Thanks for your kind words about the hat AND the hair!

Love the way it turned out!!! Beautiful! Love the color, stitch pattern AND the way it fits you! Doesn't look too big. I thought that style was supposed to look like that.
