 I want to see if I could make a slouchy hat well after switching hooks 3 times and ripping it out 3 times I got it done. I plan to try a different pattern just to give it a try but this worked well however I changed the last few rows to SC with a decrease since I couldn't figure out how to do a double crochet decrease...:O) I would add extra rows at the bottom as well maybe as many at 5 rows as it seems not to slouch as well like it needs more space on ones head to do that I may just add them in today :O) what you guys think of this hat? Is the hat too big/slouchy? Need more slouchy? or more row near the end forehead area to make it wider/longer?Any comments would be GREAT!!! Thanks for viewing...

Hey! Are those ever nice. I wish I could do something like that, but I'm hopeless. I remember when I was younger my mother got a pair of homemade phentex slippers for me in pink and white. I wore them for years. They were the best. I miss them. She got them from a senior's home that she worked in. I loved them because I could throw them in the wash. They kept my feet warm. Good memories. You must get a real sense of accomplishment from that. I tried to learn but it near drove me crazy. I admire what you've done.

I think that hat is perfect just the way you made it and I love the different shades of green. Nice job!

Wow! the hat turned out great. My sister just made me a hat like that but added a bill to the front and put a neat pin on it. I make afghans for the homeless and mother's that need baby blankets. I have also made winter sets to keep the homeless warm. Keep up the nice job.
