Slouchy Honey Hat: New Pattern Alert!!!

I know I say this every time, but I really am SUPER excited about my newest design. The Slouchy Honey Hat pattern just came flowing out on the needles and I loved making it. Here's all the info and you can get the pattern on Ravelry, Craftsy, or my Etsy shop. (For those of you in the Indianapolis area, I will also be teaching this hat [along with the Button Up Honey Cowl] as a class on November 15th, 2014 at the Village Yarn Shop in Zionsville, IN. Would love to see you there!)


The stylish Slouchy Honey hat features a deep rib brim to keep the hat snug on your head and your ears warm. The honeycomb pattern in the body of the hat looks visually complex, but is simple and enjoyable to knit. A quick decrease at the tiptop gives a gathered look, with the option of adding a playful pom-pom as an accent. This hat is full of fun and perfect for fall and winter weather! Grab two contrasting skeins of your favorite DK or light worsted yarn and sit down for a knit!
