I made these three slouchy hats yesterday, April 8th. (By the way, please pardon my un-cooperative model....my favorite model was busy). The white hat was first. I made it yesterday morning in one hour. I timed it. I used "I Love this Yarn" and an I hook. I'm trying to figure out how to make them smaller as my daughter has a smaller head.
After I got back home from my CAT scan and a short trip to Wal-Mart, I sat down in the afternoon and started the blue one. It's made using Lion Brand Homespun yarn in Windsor and an I hook.
Then, last night before I went to bed, I made the brown one. I used some yarn that I found at Wal-Mart for $1 per 2.5 oz. skein. It's called Promo Fil and the color is Taupe. My son actually likes this one.
