A follow up post to the second slouchy hat. (because I am in no way concise, or together, or any of those things that would be conducive to posting clear, together blog posts. I really do apologize.)
I took the hat out for a spin around New Cross this morning. The hat and I are going places. I do like this hat.
It has balance, a balance I did not think I would achieve with this *coughcraptasticacryliccough* yarn. There is something about the marriage of seed stitch and simple cables that makes my inner muse sing, my fashion sense smile, and my...oh you get it. I like the hat.
When it comes to knitting, especially garments for myself, I often find that less is more. I wear the simple things, the ones I can throw on when I'm late for class or stressed out from studying. If there is too much going on, too many cables or patterns or color, I often find myself wondering why the object in question seems to have migrated father away from the light of day and taken up permanent residence in the back of my closet.
No closet for this hat though. It's pretty much perfect, even if it is acrylic.*
So, for those who asked, here is a pattern! It should be fairly straightforward, like I said earlier there is something beautifully simplistic about this hat. It flew off my needles faster than a knitter at Rhinebeck.
I have moved this pattern over to Ravelry.com as a free ravelry pdf download. I also rewrote it so it is "new and improved!"
If you are not on Ravelry, feel free to email me or leave a note in the comments and I will email you the pattern.
Thanks to everyone who pointed out my mistakes, typos, and errors. It made rewriting the pattern much easier, and it should now be simpler to follow.

*A girl has her needs, okay? I found it at a market. It was cheap. I needed yarn. I was sick. Need I go on with the excuses? (not much of a secret, I know)
