slouchy beanie

A while back a friend of mine say me working on a hat at work. His immediate words were “Can you make me one with really bright greens and blues and stuff”, and I said sure! I chose an aqua blue, bright, orange, lime green, and black yarn by Stitch Nation. I wanted some black in the hat to make it a little manlier and in hopes that it would make the brighter colors really pop. I didn’t want to make a regular ol’ striped hat so I decided to intermingle the colors throughout the hat. Little did I know what a pain in the bum this would be! Switching colors so many times in one row made for lots, and I mean LOTS, of ends to tie in. But despite that, the hat looked killer and all the work really paid off. And my friend couldn’t be more pleased. The smile on his face was payment enough for me.

Overall I’m really please with the end result of this hat. It looks super cool and different. And the fit was perfect as well. It even fit on my big noodle!
