Yup! It's a hat.


Pattern Source: Slouched Tuva Hat pattern, FREE from Turvid
Yarn: Yarn from The Plucky Knitter/ Merino Cashmere Nylon Worsted Weight, color way Honey Wilkes
Needles: size 7 and 8
Ravelry Link: HERE
Notes: I knitted this is worsted instead of the DK the pattern calls for. I liked the way it turned out. I didn't alter the pattern at all this time but if I were to knit with worsted again I think I'd cast on for less stitches (maybe 20) and increase into the first pattern round to get the required number of stitches for the rest of the hat.

The hat looks great on you and I love that color. What a great way to block it too.

This is lovely. I like the idea of making several hats, thanks for the link to the patterns.
I have a question about the afghan that you knit.
I started one and my cast on looks big and messy, do you have an suggestions?
Thank you so much for your help!
