Four days to go 'till Christmas and I am knitting as fast as I can. How about you?
One of my favorite last minute gift ideas this year is Bernat's Slouchy Hat. I love knitting this hat for girls in college but I think this hat is great for ladies of all ages. I even want to knit this
hat for me!
The Slouchy Hat can be knit in a night or two. It's knit flat and then seamed up. You only need basic skills and should know how to do cables. If you don't know how to do cables this is a pretty good pattern to learn how to do front and back cables. It's just may take you a little longer to knit.
I've knit several of these hats in Debbie Bliss SoHo bulky yarn. It's discontinued now but you can check your favorite yarn shop for a similar bulky yarn or use the Alpaca yarn that Bernat recommends.
I love this Slouchy Hat.
Hand knits are so much nicer than all the acrylic machine knits out in the stores for Christmas. This hat really looks cute on and looks like it came from a fashionable boutique. Love that!
Happy Last Minute Knitting!
