Purple Butterscotch for Halos of Hope
Here’s the second hat for December in my 2014 Stash Bust Challenge. This is the Cable and Rib Slouchy Hat from Red Heart. I really like this pattern. It uses short rows for the crown shaping and it’s pretty easy. When I was a little more than half-way through I realized I wouldn’t have enough purple yarn (Caron Simply Soft) so I added the blocks of cream to get the needed circumference. The only other modification I made was a slight adjustment to the brim. I’d like to add a pom-pom but I’m going to wait until I have a chance to crochet another Divine Hat with the remaining cream yarn as I don’t want to run short. If there’s enough cream left over, I’ll make a pom-pom for this hat. If not, it looks good as is!
This hat weighs 3.5 ounces.
