5 Reasons You Need the 21-Color Slouch Hat
Are you all ready for hat weather? I know I am! I can’t wait to break out my knitted hat collection and start wearing my favorites. We’re still several weeks away from autumn weather, unfortunately, but that’s okay because it will give me time to add to my collection! I’m currently finishing up the Slouchy Ribbed Hat from Quick + Easy Knits, and I’m so excited to start on my next project: the 21-Color Slouch Hat from Blue Sky Fibers!
This slouchy hat checks so many boxes for me. Read on to see the top 5 reasons I’ll be making this fantastic knitted hat—and why you should make it, too!
1. It’s Cute and Versatile
I mean, look at it! This hat is so cute. Multicolored stripes FTW! I love that it’s super versatile—it would look equally at home in the city, at the pumpkin patch, or on the ski slopes. And it’s totally gender neutral in color, style, and fit, so it’s a great fall hat for everyone.
2. It’s Soft and Warm
If you haven’t tried Blue Sky Fibers’s Woolstok, you need to get your hands on some right now. It’s gloriously soft and squishy, and it’s as lovely to knit with as it is to wear. Woolstok is 100% fine highland wool, so this hat will keep your head toasty throughout the cold weather.
3. It’s Made with Mini-Skeins!
One of my favorite things about this kit is the adorable mini-skeins you use to make it. You get all 21 colors of Woolstok (hence the project name) in 5-gram hanks. Who could resist these teeny skeins?
4. It’s a Great Gift
The 21-Color Slouch is perfect for everyone on your list. Seriously. You can make it for your mom, your brother, your niece, your favorite coworker . . . anyone! You can adjust the color sequence to your recipient’s liking, and if there’s a color that you know she or he doesn’t like, you can leave just that one out without affecting the slouchy fit. Plus, this hat is knit in just stockinette stitch, so it’s a relatively quick knit—perfect for gifts.
5. It’s Striped!
Stripes are THE BEST. They never go out of style, and they suit everyone! The stripes in this hat are extra fun because they vary in width and color; it looks random, but it all comes together to create a modern and playful hat that I can’t wait to knit.
If you need another hat this fall, or a quick and fun hat to gift someone, get the 21-Color Slouch Hat kit! You’ll love playing with colors and stripes to make what will surely become your go-to hat this autumn.
Happy stripey hat knitting!
