Hat for Charrie

Between my two denim hat successes, I worked on this for Charrie.  She wanted a beret-like, slouchy kind of hat.  After a couple of mockups, I came up with this:

Looked more like a tam and less like a slouchy beret.  While the hat is just a little small, it’s wearable…  BUT!!!   Unspoken requirements:

  1. needs to be WAY slouchier and
  2. loose enough to be able to pull over the tops of the ears

Between new requirements #1 and #2, I drafted the new pattern.  The old one is on top, the newer one is on the bottom.  But once I got the second new requirement, I drafted a 3rd pattern (not shown here).

Keep an eye out for #3 and hat from the pattern.
