BUZZ BUZZ Knit Slouchy Hat

how to knit, knit patterns, free knit patterns, slouchy hats, chunky hats,




There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: 

a time to crochet and a time to knit!


You all know crochet is my favourite hobby, I love to crochet and I prefer to crochet, however, there is a time when I just need to knit. 

Knitting gives me a break from crochet. To hold a needle in each hand where the hand movements are different from that of holding a crochet hook, and gradually working my way through the stitches on the needle, is more relaxing than making all those stitches using one hand with a crochet hook. That is why every now and then I will share with you a knitting project where I have taken the time to write down the instructions.

BUZZ BUZZ Knit Slouchy Hat

This months' knit pattern is a simple slouchy hat using chunky yarn. I had a couple of balls of this lovely Wendy Mode Chunky in my stash, it's a lovely soft blend of 50% Merino Wool 50% Acrylic, and for those of you who prefer to machine wash your knit garments, this yarn is machine washable.
