L'Slouch Hat


Pattern: L'Slouch, free pattern from Knit & Tonic
Yarn: Terra by The Fiber Company, 2 skeins in Black Walnut
Needles: bamboo DPNs, sizes 7 and 9

Notes: I'm running off to my first Spider Double Baby Shower, so don't have much time for notes. Luckily this is a simple pattern, so there's not much to say. Seed stitch is the perfect texture for showing off this amazing yarn. Also, I fear that the yarn, while amazing, may stretch, making L'Slouch more L'Slouch than the L'Slouch you see here.

Don't you agree that this is the perfect photographers' cap?

L'Slouch: c'est le chapeau parfait pour prendre des photos!

Lovely! It suits you quite well. :)

Posted by: Alison at February 18, 2007 5:15 PM

Oui, c'est vrai, c'est parfait

Posted by: Carson at February 18, 2007 5:19 PM

It's a beautiful hat! I love the way the seed stitch looks. You did a great job!

You look beyond fab in the L'Slouch.

Adorable hat and adorable photos. I may just have to try this pattern out myself. And yes, the pattern does suit the photographer-look quite well.

That's lovely! So lovely it makes me seriously reconsider my fear of double-pointed needles...

Posted by: Laura at February 18, 2007 7:28 PM

I was so afraid to try this one b/c my Somewhat Cowl came out so awful. I may have to come back to her.

Posted by: lola at February 18, 2007 7:48 PM

that yarn is lovely! le slouch is definitely on my list, although I probably won't knit it until I get to the UK (sob - I really can't justify buying any yarn or knitting anything at the moment as I can't afford it and it will probably only get left here anyway)

Love the hat, hmmmm should I make this? I dont really look good in hats, but everyone seems to look good in this one!

Posted by: Sherry at February 18, 2007 9:04 PM

J'adore L'Slouch. Looks fabulous on you!

Posted by: Lisa at February 18, 2007 9:06 PM

Wonderful! I just did Le Slouch too, in some leftover I need to try it again in a solid or with more subtle color variation. I love yours!

Posted by: Beth at February 18, 2007 9:18 PM

I have to agree that the seed stitch is nicely suited to your yarn. I have been considerin making this hat with some black yarn, but maybe that's not the ticket.

Your L'Slouch looks lovely on you.

Posted by: Momo at February 18, 2007 10:21 PM

How pretty and chic! C'est tres jolie!
And it definitely slouches just so. I made a beret recently, but perhaps I was looking more for a slouch like this--

Oh well, I'll just stand back and admire yours :)

Posted by: kodachrome at February 18, 2007 11:58 PM

Love it! It is the perfect hat. Great yarn, too. And how adorable are you in those photos?
Also, I take it L'Slouch is fun to say. ;)

P.S. - Hope you had a great time at the double-baby shower.

Posted by: Maritza at February 19, 2007 12:06 AM

Yes, perfect photographers cap!

Posted by: Ronikins at February 19, 2007 1:45 AM

That looks fantastic! I love it!

Posted by: Vickery at February 19, 2007 1:56 AM

Did you work the main part for less than 6 inches. I ask as I just finished mine, which turned out way too l'slouchey and think I might frog it downa bit.

Posted by: alice at February 19, 2007 4:37 AM

It has such a cool vintagey look - you look very Lois Lane-esqe (I mean that in a good way, I wanted to be like her when I was a little kid).

Posted by: MeBeth at February 19, 2007 6:38 AM

You look so great in that hat! The yarn looks amazing - the colors are perfect.

Posted by: mari at February 19, 2007 8:31 AM

lovely hat and super-cute photos! i love the color of that yarn.

Posted by: amisha at February 19, 2007 8:39 AM

Posted by: ann at February 19, 2007 8:56 AM

Posted by: domesticat at February 19, 2007 9:02 AM

Could you be any cuter in that thing?! Love it!

Posted by: Cheryl at February 19, 2007 9:31 AM

i love how it turned out! c'est magnifique!

Posted by: gleek at February 19, 2007 9:49 AM

ooh-la-lovely! (I am somewhat knew to knit blogging, but I truly enjoy reading yours!)

Posted by: Chelsea at February 19, 2007 10:33 AM

I had to come out of lurking to compliment you on your L'Slouch! And also to mention that the whole look is very Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde (and I mean that in a good way!)

Posted by: Katie K. at February 19, 2007 11:07 AM

You are le cute as a button.

Posted by: Gina at February 19, 2007 11:33 AM

Trop Parfait! I should be wearing one when I'm taking photos... The seed stitch *is* perfect for that yarn.

Posted by: Aimee at February 19, 2007 12:04 PM

That counts as the best L'Slouch ever. Your pictures are phenomenal.

Posted by: schrodinger at February 19, 2007 12:20 PM

All you need to be the ultimate in French photography is the tight black shirt and pants.

It really suits you.

Posted by: Dorothy B at February 19, 2007 12:56 PM

Oh my gosh, so cute! The yarn you picked is perfect for your hair and skin teeny bopper purple or pink for you! Cute, cute pic of you, too! I just said cute three times, I need to go back to college.

Posted by: Julia MacRobbie at February 19, 2007 1:20 PM

That looks beautiful on you! It is the perfect photographer's hat!

Posted by: tiennie at February 19, 2007 4:02 PM

Ok, I definitely need my own L'Slouch, but I know I'll be too spacey on homeymoon to knit with dpns. Do you think it would work ok knit flat with a seam in the back?
(And I know, knitting on honeymoon may seem... unromantic. But it's a month long, and he's accepted the knitting...)

Posted by: Laura at February 19, 2007 5:15 PM

The hat looks really flattering on you with your hair color!

Posted by: Debby at February 19, 2007 5:19 PM

That's a great color on you!

Posted by: Cristina (CrissyPo) at February 19, 2007 9:26 PM

That is a really cute hat, and it's really cute on you...not everyone could get away with something like that. Love it, I think I must do one too! ;)

Posted by: Carrie at February 19, 2007 10:36 PM

You look so adorable in these pictures! I love your L'Slouch, it is so cute on you! And yes, you look like quite the chic photographer. :)

Posted by: Jessica at February 20, 2007 10:54 PM

Simply beautiful! I love the depth of the color in that yarn, and such a great design. I looks really adorable on you. I hope it doesn't l'slouch too much!

Posted by: megan at February 21, 2007 7:32 AM

L'Slouch looks great on you!

Posted by: Miss Scarlett at February 21, 2007 8:30 AM

OK,I had NO desire to make a beret until I saw your pics! Now, I am dying to make one. Looks gorgeous.

Posted by: tiffanykapri at February 21, 2007 11:32 AM

Very cute! Love the "action shot!"

Posted by: Nonnahs at February 21, 2007 11:40 AM

Gorgeous! I wonder if I could pull that look off. It looks wonderful on you (particularly with the camera).

Posted by: Corvus at February 21, 2007 2:14 PM

Love it! A fabulous hat!

Posted by: Suzanne at February 21, 2007 2:16 PM

I love slouchy beret type hats! I need to put that hat on my to do list, but it's already so long! Guess one more won't hurt!

Posted by: Loren at February 21, 2007 5:31 PM

I love that hat! I'm going to take up knitting just to get that hat. The color and style really suits you too!

Posted by: Notsocrafty at February 21, 2007 11:38 PM

That color and style suite you well, I'm seriously going to take up knitting just to get my hands on that hat.

Posted by: Notsocrafty at February 21, 2007 11:39 PM

Well, looks like you found somthing to do with that lovely yarn! It looks great!

Posted by: Silver Ilix at February 22, 2007 12:06 AM

I had a problem with my Mist tam getting too slouchy after a few wearings, and I'm happy to report that skimming a couple of lines of elastic thread through the inside of the band solved the problem just perfectly. Le Slouch (no, I can't turn off my inner editor long enough to type L' when there's a following consonant) looks parfait!

Posted by: Sarah at February 22, 2007 2:49 PM

Le Cool!

Posted by: Keanalee at February 25, 2007 1:11 AM

The hat looks GREAT on looked terrible on me and has already been turned into something else. I think I just don't have the style to carry it off. I loved the pattern, though.

Posted by: Rebecca at February 28, 2007 9:32 AM

So cute!

Posted by: BrownPants at March 1, 2007 6:20 PM

As my son would say, I think your hat looks 'cooooooooooooool'!

Posted by: Nikki at March 12, 2007 8:28 AM

These spinning shoes feature some advanced soft closure system and padded tongues that will reduce pressure on the feet. A choice for hard pedalists, these shoes are priced at USD 240.

I used to have the L'Slouch pattern and now can't find it. My niece lost the one I knit for her. Do you have a copy of the original Pattern?
