I Made a Weekendy Hat over the Weekend!

Hello!  How was your weekend?  Mine was full of knitting.

So. Much. Knitting.

It was glorious.

I made this hat!

It's the Simple Rib Beanie, and I got this pattern on Friday because Leisure Arts is delightful and does Free Pattern Friday emails.  It's been a while since I've talked about this, so let me just say that you need to be signed up for the Leisure Arts newsletter and, by extension, Free Pattern Friday.  Because when you sign up for the weekly newsletter, you can check a little box indicating your interests and there are free weekly patterns for knitters and crocheters.  So you get emails about new books, sales, AND  a free pattern every week.

Like this one!

This is knit on Size 9 and 11 needles on super bulky weight yarn.  I got the required gauge with a Size 10 needle, so I used an 8 and a 10.  This used up about a skein of Lion Brand's Thick and Quick, and I made it in about two episodes of Luther.

This is a perfect weekend project that makes a perfect weekend hat.  The knitted fabric is thick without being stiff, and then hat is slouchy without being too floppy.


It's also very cute and warm.  So knit this for yourself!  Knit it for some slouchy hat-lovers on your Christmas list!  Try it out!  Maybe with a shorter brim!  Or a longer crown!  Whatever floats your hat-wearing boat!
And sign up for the newsletter and get your weekends started with free patterns!

Sorry about all the exclamation points.  I'm riding off the high of a great knitting weekend, and now I have a great slouchy hat pattern in my arsenal.  It's bound to get a girl excited.
