First blog post after baby number 3 is here, he is 7 weeks old. I am so glad to hold him in my arms and very thankful that he is such a good baby. I couldn’t believe only 6 weeks postpartum, I managed to have enough free time to design and knit a hat. Since my brain wasn’t functioning super due to the lack of sleep, this hat is very simple and easy to make even for knitting newbies.
Here is my newest design: 4 in 1 Reversible Knitted Slouchy / Beanie Hat (click here for pattern)
Got this gorgeous luxury yarn from my last project for my mother in law, I decided to make a hat for her this year. She wears a hat everywhere she goes, so a reversible hat is the way to go.
This hat is fast to make and only use one skein of yarn (weight 3 yarn, dk or worsted weight, 200 a 220 yards). I used superwash silk pearlescent worsted weight yarn from Expression Fiber Arts, it is a mix of merino wool (50%) and silk (50%). This colorway in the picture is no longer available but they have many other gorgeous colors to choose from. I seriously want to get my hands on each one of them if I can afford to do so.
It drapes beautifully as a slouchy and have a pretty sheen from the yarn itself no matter how you wear it. If you wear it as a beanie only, consider adding a pom pom on top, it will be super cute.
Made two more hats for my girls in a more affordable soft pink yarn, same pattern, just different yarn. I used Bernat baby big ball sport yarn in Blossom. It is so soft and comfy, my girls love it.
My oldest daughter models the small size hat in Blossom colorway.
