Chunky Slouchy Beanie
Last week, I found this cute crochet hat pattern on Ravelry by Polkdot Squirrel. I asked my daughter if she thought my niece would wear it and she said yeah (my daughter doesn't wear crocheted hats :/ ). So I bought the pattern at Etsy.
Since I liked the look of the hat on Ravelry, I used the same yarn from Michaels called Loops and Threads Charisma in Off-White.
I usually crochet very tightly, so I used a bigger hook than the pattern called for, but it was way too big. Then I used the size the pattern called for and it was still a bit big, so I went with a smaller hook. I thought it was pretty cute--a bit big, but cute. My daughter thinks it is way too big still--I am not sure if I will pull it back a couple of rows or not.
I was going to give it to my niece for Christmas, but since she is coming over on Thanksgiving, maybe I will see what she thinks about the size.
