Slouchy Beehive Hat

I've been mulling over slouchy hat patterns for a long time.  It's so hard to predict what will fit, feel right and look ok.   I finally settled on the Slouchy Beehive Hat pattern I discovered on Ravelry.   Just had to wait for a break in the weather so I could get some yarn.  At long last,  I finally made a hat that basically fits.  It's a touch big, but it's supposed to be.  And I hate the vise-like grip my previous hats held on my head so I don't mind a loose fit. Started on Super-Bowl Sunday following a quick afternoon excursion to the new Joann's.  Finished on Wednesday evening.  And not much time spent on Tuesday evening at all.  I needed chunky/bulky yarn and there wasn't a big selection, but this Wool-ease chunky in Willow turned out to be a good choice.

Not much sun, so the photos aren't so great.  And I'm pretty weak in the selfie skills.  But I think you'll get the idea.  I have to go out in the cold tomorrow morning, so I'll debut it then.


A tribute to "Blurred Lines".  I'm not much for showing my face on the interwebs.

Your hat turned out great! I love slouchy hats and yours is adorable! I agree about the banding being too tight and much prefer a slightly loose fit as long as it doesn't fall in my eyes.

The hat looks like it fits you beautifully! I don't see any strain or slack in the ribbing. How did it do on the test run today?

That hat looks absolutely great. And I'm sure it keeps your head warm during your cold weather. Very nice colour.

Great job, Annie, and such a pretty color! I hate tight hats so I might actually wear something like this... Looks like it would be perfect for this horrid weather. Hope it measured up to your expectations in it's outdoors debut :)

This is lovely Annie, good on you for knitting one that actually fits. I knitted one for my hubby years ago and we could probably have fitted both of us in it...
