Craft: Slouchy Star Hat

To get back to Portland from Northern Idaho, we had to drive nine hours in the car! Sounds pretty painful but actually wasn't too bad. My husband drove the whole way, he rocks, and my sister, mom and I road along and knitted! It was fun. We all are working on new and exciting projects. I found my hat pattern on Ravelry, and thought it was stylish and wouldn't be too challenging to knit.

In Idaho, I was lucky enough to catch up with a good friend from college, Taylor. She is an excellent knitter, and a great friend, check out these baby hats she knit.  Taylor taught me a knitting stitch which is used on my hat. It is a simple and clean way of casting on, which works great for a hat where the edge is very visible. I also used a new method for making a new stitch called M1.

What craft projects have your completed in the new year? Have you tried anything new?



  1. Awww so sweet! I have done nothing that creative! I am trying to bake more.


    Do you want to follow each other??


  2. I absolutely LOVE it! It looks great! What a fun project. I may need to practice my knitting a little before trying this out! :)

  3. Cool hat! I need to be more creative this year!

    Do you want to follow each other? Let me know.
