Slouchy Hipster Hat

by eleighb

Hey, Hipsters.  Your fashion sense is contagious.  I knit a slouchy hipster hat, but you’ve probably never heard of it. 😉

The hat is knit with Caron Simply Soft using #8 16″ circulars and #8 double points.  It’s a basic slouchy hat pattern embellished with YO eyelets and 2×2 ribbing.

Back (that white spot is a flaw in the yarn, not lint)

I initially knit this hat so I could explore e-textiles and LEDs but I decided this style of hat probably isn’t the best design to support an arduino; the ribbing isn’t very tight and the weight of the arduino and battery pack would pull the hat off my head.  So, into the box of winter gear it goes.

More e-textile business to come!
