Gin and Tonic Hat

I’ve been more into knitting than crocheting lately, and I’ve been making some hats for the holidays.  I just finished this hat. I really like the pattern and plan to make more hats like this. I found the pattern as a free pattern download on Ravelry. Here’s the link:  Gin & Tonic Hat.



The orignal hat was done in Tanis Fiber Arts Orange Label, which looked amazing. I made mine in Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable — one of my favoritive yarns that’s a bit easier on the pocketbook. The color I used was echo.  When I make another hat using this pattern, I think I will go another repeat or two before the decrease so that it’s more of a slouchy beanie.  But I really like the pattern stitch.
