Lace Slant Hat

Lace Slant Hat

So I really love this hat. I know that it’s suppose to be stretchy and big, but for some reason the yarn I chose just keeps on stretching and while the hat fit when I finished it, it now could fit a pumpkin. I’m hoping to shrink it in the wash- although it’s 70% acrylic so it may not shrink much. When making this hat make sure that your yarn isn’t to stretchy- or make it a little small.

This hat isn’t knit in the round, and I was a little concerned about the seaming because you have to make sure that your slant lace lines up. I think that I did a pretty good job of it :

Cloverdale didn’t much care for wearing the hat:

My hair tucked up in it perfectly- all good hippie hats must do that!

Thanks! The color of the hat when it isn't on my head is more accurate. Since the yarn was so stretchy I'm going to try to make it again with a bamboo/wool blend that my husband got me for my birthday.
