Stash Bust 2014, Mid December Update

Purple Butterscotch for Halos of Hope

Butterscotch Cream crochet hat made 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.
