Pebbles Hat

 I wanted to squeak in a red hat before the winter ended, and I did! My Ravelry project page is here.


I happened across the Pebble Hat by The Lamb and Kid while searching Ravelry for a quick, slouchy hat pattern. This one-size pattern is free, knit on US size 5 and 6 circular needles, and uses a worsted weight yarn. From moment I decided I wanted a red hat until finish, this only took me a week (including the walk to the yarn store!).  The hat is mostly garter rib until you get to the decreases, where it switches to 1x1 rib. The hat is also reversible. 


Once I chose the pattern, I walked down to Loop Yarn here in Philadelphia and grabbed two skeins of Big Bad Wool in the color "ho ho ho". The yarn is very soft, and we'll see how it holds up.


I am extremely sick of winter and don't want it to be cold anymore. But, knitting this hat (even in a colorway named for Christmas) helped my mood a bit as I hoped to be able to wear it at least once before it got too cold. Fortunately (or unfortunately) I've already worn it. 

Overall: easy pattern, nice yarn, and a perfect amount of slouch.
