Crochet for a rainy day....

Cold rainy days call for hot drinks and a fun project. Here are a couple of slouch hats I crocheted this morning for Christmas gifts. This is a quick and easy pattern to make and I even started a nice warm scarf to go with the blue one based on the basic pattern. These also make wonderful hats for charity (always check the orgs guidelines for yarn and pattern requirements first)
I found this pattern at PatternsByDot. (Be sure to read Dot's terms of use) The yarns I used were Jiffy from LionBrandYarn and (1 and a half skeins) Taupe Mist. The blue one is made with 1 skein Bernat Softee Chunky, color #39116. Both have good drape and were made with size J Hook. You can also use worsted weight (as called for in the pattern) if your prefer. Many of your LYS's carry these yarns or equivalent yarns to make the pattern.
Put an extra pot of tea or coffee on and enjoy your knitting or crochet.

Looks good on you! You've inspired me. I think what I need is a *slouch* hat because wearing non-slouchies bugs me.
