Issue 217 Fresco Simple Slouchy Hat
Hats are my proverbial 'chicken-soup' when it comes to knitting. When I'm feeling beat up by a tricky sweater pattern or I can't find a cadence with my double points, a hat is just the thing to cast on. They don't have too many stitches and I know what to expect; I can just knit without having to think too much.
Of course not all hat patterns are chicken soup, but this week's Simple Slouchy Hat, designed by Susan Mills, is perfect when you need a little knitting comfort. With a little slouch and three sizes, it's an easy fit. Not to mention Fresco is a yummy yarn for just about any cool-weather project.
