Loopy Academy - The Hat

The last project for Loopy Academy, Freshman Year, Semester One is the hat.  (Actually, that’s my last project, yours might be something different because we can do them in any order.)  It has to be knit in DK or Sport weight yarn and the pattern has to be from a new-to-you designer.  In order to hit the yardage requirement, I chose the slouchy, garter stitch design, Rikke, by Sarah Young.  I tried knitting a slouchy hat once before and it didn’t work at all.  It might have been too loose at the cast on and ribbing, but also my head is really round.  Mickael and Caleb have these ridges on the back of their heads where a slouchy hat can kind of sit and stay on correctly.  The back of my head is just rounded and smooth.  I did get the cast on and the first few rounds (worked on a smaller needle) tight enough this time, but I’ll only know if it stays on right once it’s done.  I think it’s a cute hat and I hope it works out.  Fortunately, hats are super fast, so I’ll know soon!

The yarn I’m using is Fable Fibers Biography in Ruby.  I love the color shading of the tonal reds on this yarn.  I think this would make a cute pullover with a pair of jeans too.  I might have been thinking about pullover patterns last night while I knit on the hat.  Here’s my Rav project page, if you’re interested!
