I recently received some amazing yarns from Red Heart Yarns. Included, was this fantastic #6 super bulky yarn, called Boutique Twilight. I knew instantly that this yarn was destined to become a slouchy style hat! So I designed one, in my daughter's favorite style~with a saucy little brim. (This is optional~the pattern has instructions for it with or without.)
It is a #6 super bulky, so that means it works up your projects very quickly, too. I had no problems with it snagging, splitting, or slipping off my hook~it truly IS a pleasure to use.
Would you like to recreate your own hat like this? Follow me for the instructions~
