It’s hat weather once again, and have I got a cute one for you! It’s highly textured, and will keep you warm and stylish this fall and winter. With a different stitch on almost every row, the Sugar and Spice slouch hat is interesting to make, and has a unique look that you don’t see very often.
Doesn’t it look luxurious? I’m totally in love with the way it came out. Texture is something I’ve wanted to play around with all fall, and this was the perfect excuse for that. In fact, this will probably end up being my Christmas present to family this year. So if you are family, and you’re reading this, just pretend you didn’t see it, ok? 😉
Here’s what you’ll need, and need to know, to get you started:
5.5mm (I) hook
6mm (J) hook (for trim)
Approximately 180-200 yards worsted weight yarn
yarn needle for weaving in ends
You’ll need to be comfortable with doing post stitches, back loop stitches, and working in the 3rd loop of a hdc.
Loose tension is required! (Otherwise you’ll have a hat that fits your kindergartner… which is fine, if that is what you’re going for, but this was originally designed to fit the average adult lady’s head.) 😉
One more note:
These pictures show this hat in a neutral color, but I’ve made a couple in bright colors, and it looks just as amazing. Honestly, I don’t know which is my favorite!
Now that you’re drooling over all the delicious textured details, go check it out the Sugar and Spice slouch hat on Ravelry!
