Finished Object: Dolce Slouch Hat

This has been finished since Jan. 13, but I haven't had the time (or good weather) to photograph it. Today the sun came out, yay!

So here's my Dolce Slouch hat:


I used undyed Navajo yarn purchased at the Cameron Trading Post in Arizona several years ago. It was a gorgeous yarn to work with (very soft!!) and the hat pattern was easy to follow.

I was specifically looking for a quick knit for a slouchy hat that I could wear right away and this fit the bill. It's knit in-the-round on size 8 (US) or 5.0 mm needles so it really doesn't take much time to do.

There's not much else to say about this hat, except that I've been wearing it nearly every day since it jumped off my needles.

Have a good weekend everyone, laters! ;)
