Bee Slouchy

Because of a small incident involving an exploding gallon of paint, I am the proud new owner of a grey winter coat. So here is the hat I created to go with it. I did yellow and grey (to match some gloves I already own), but it would be fun in any color combination!


Martha Stewart Crafts Extra Soft Wool Blend in grey pearl
Caron Simply Soft in sunshine
Size 7 circular needle 16"
Yarn needle


Cast on 88 stitches in grey pearl. Place marker and join. Knit 6 rows in knit 2, purl 2 rib. Knit 1 row.

Begin repeats:

Row 1: Switch to sunshine yarn. Knit 1 row.
Row 2: Purl.
Row 3: *Purl 2 together, yarn over*, repeat.
Row 4: Purl.
Rows 5-8: Knit.
Row 9: Purl
Row 10: *Purl 2 together, yarn over*, repeat.
Row 11: Purl.
Rows 12-15: Switch to pearl grey and knit.

Repeat Rows 1-15 once more and rows 1-11 again.
Switch to pearl gray and begin decrease

Row 1: *Knit 9, K2tog* repeat.
Row 2: *Knit 8, K2tog* repeat.
Row 3: *Knit 7, K2tog* repeat.
Row 4: *Knit 6, K2tog* repeat.
Row 5: *Knit 5, K2tog* repeat.
Row 6: *Knit 4, K2tog* repeat.
Row 7: *Knit 3, K2tog* repeat.
Row 8: *Knit 2, K2tog* repeat.
Row 9: *Knit, K2tog* repeat.
Row 10: K2tog 8 times. Break yarn and sew remaining stitches together, secure tightly and weave in ends.

To make the hat slouchier, add a row of knit in either the yellow or gray band (or both).
