Fancy sockhead hat


I didn't want to put half a ball of yarn left from the fancy "sea-foam" scarf back to my stash, so I looked for a matching hat pattern. Lucky me I found a very lovely pattern on Ravelry named "Sockhead hat".


This is the first time I heard about "sockhead" and found it's so interesting to try. It came out pretty lovely! 


My yarn is a medium weight, heavier than what is called for - a light weight sock yarn, so after checking my gauge I decided to cast on less stitches: only 80 stitches on 5.0mm circular needles. My work was done so quickly with these much fewer number of stitches!

I love the pattern and how it turned out, it's very easy and fun to knit! It just took me two nights to finish. The brim folded up is so comfy... 


... and I especially love the slouch! 


Even how it looks when lying flat is also fun! If this is not what I made, I would hardly believe it is a hat! 


Thank you so much for your time, wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs, LS x
