Simple Black Hat with a Twist

I used the second skein of Alize Lanagold Solids and made a simple slouchy hat to match the legwarmers. The hat has a wide double ribbed brim (92 sts.) and a stockinette body (100 sts) with the same cable pattern described on the legwarmers page.

Pattern: self drafted cabled slouchy hat
Yarn: Alize Lanagold Solids 100 g
Needle: 3.5 mm rib, 4 mm body

For the double rib I like to do a provisional cast on, knit a double legth of rib and then knit together the current row of stitches and the cast on row. 

Although the hat and the legwarmers are made to match, they seem to have gone in different directions. The legwarmers went to school - my daughter loves them and wears them every day, but in a set with the cotton black hat I made her in October, while I'm keeping this slouchy hat for me.

A funny thing - I must have at least half a dozen wool hats, but the other night I sat until 2:00 AM to finish this one. At some point my husband asked me if I was in such a need of a hat that I couldn't set it aside and I said yes, utterly convinced that this current hat was absolutely indispensable to my winter wardrobe. But I guess you know the feeling :)

  2. I do know the feeling. I love the hat, and the button detail is great.

  3. I have not made many hats but I know the feeling ! Looks lovely on you :)

  4. This hat looks amazing! I totally love it. I'm still a beginner in knitting and I still have to knit a hat for myself so I have an excuse to knit until dawn haha.

  5. You may have a dozen wool hats, but maybe you need one just as cute and slouchy as that one ?! It suits you beautifully. You'd better guard it from your daughter!

  6. Great slouch! I love the cable detailing and the buttons.
