My sister’s birthday wish this year was a blue slouchy hat with a light yarn and pattern. She has beautiful light red hair and the color she picked makes her hair shine even more. Since it’s her birthday and I made the calculations anyway, I’ll give you this pattern as a gift, too. It’s adult size and quite wide to sit loosely on the head. It’s not too long, so you can fold the brim and wear it as a cap, too.
The yarn this hat is made from is Lamana Como, a new yarn. It’s unbelievably soft and light. The weight is spectacular for the length (25g for 120m), that’s why you should double the amount of yarn stated below, if you substitute it for another one. The hat in the Como yarn is 50g.
- one size for adults
- written pattern with charts
- english and german instructions
Materials you need at home:
- Lamana Como; 100% wool; 120m, 25g per skein , color petrol (24) 2 skeins (=50g)
- 1 set double pointed needles size 3mm/US 2.5
