Knitting Pattern: Slouchy Mama Hat

As of recently, I've been knitting up a storm! I thought it'd be nice to share a few projects I'm working on every now and then. So I give you the pattern (from Brookiellen Designs) for my new favorite hat.


I know the picture is a tad blurry, but I hope to get a better one soon when I can convince my other half to pick up the camera. :) This was a really quick knit and I used Wool Ease Thick & Quick in Sequoia.


The hat itself turned out really big, but some day I hope to have a lot of hair so I'm ok with that! Are you ready for the pattern yet? Here you go!
