Le Slouch - Round 2

I knitted Le Slouch this past January, but I never wore it because it just looked weird on me. It was too slouchy, and had too much drape. It sort of took over my head and made me look like I didn't have any hair. So, I decided to just re-knit the thing rather than let it waste away.

I went down 3 needle sizes for the ribbing, and 1 for the rest of the hat. The fabric turned out much firmer, and now better holds its shape. I also didn't knit as much before I started the top decreases, so it has more of a beret shape. And, this just might be my favorite hat yet!

I don't usually knit a pattern more than once, but I will definitely make more of these. Coincidentally, I finally found the best lighting in my yard - I didn't have to edit these pictures at all.

The hat looks great, Sarah! I love the colors... what's the yarn????
I wish I could wear hats. The only ones I end up looking sorta ok in are just baseball caps. Boring. :(

Funny that you thank us for the comments at a time that I have been MIA for over a week. I was on vacation. But now I am back.

Nice hat. I just started one too.
