Robin Hood Hat Finished Object

So I have this thing with hats.

I love them. I have been living in them these past few weeks. Straw hats, slouchy hats, all kinds of hats.

And this one is no exception. In fact, it’s one of my all-time favs. Ever.

It was supah dupah quick to knit. Especially since I have finally succombed to Audible.com. I listened to my first audio book while working on this. Buh-rilliant idea!

I love knitting more than life, but it can get boring for me sometimes. So being able to listen to something that doesn’t require your eyes is greattt! It made the time pass so quickly and enjoyably. It’s really enhanced the whole crafting time.

First book I listened to was Divergent. Interesting, but not exactly my vibe.

Second book I’ve got going is by Theresa Caputo, the Long Island Medium and is called There’s More to Life Than This. LOVE IT.

Anyways, back to the hat:

how to knit a hat

PATTERN: Robin Hood. I found it a wonderful pattern and easy to follow. Took several hours to complete.

YARN: 2 skeins of my ultra-soft hand-spun Natural Chocolate Yak-Down yarn. Luscious and creamy! It’s so great for a rainy day in the summer or of course any kind of cool weather. Cozy and comfy and just makes me feel all warm and protected.

NEEDLES: Size recommended in the pattern. I didn’t test a gauge swatch and it turned out the right size, so yay!

TIME: Several hours to complete. I’d say it’s advanced beginner level.

BUTTONS: Coconut shell buttons from Joann’s! They were 4.95 each packet (took 2 packets) but were 40% off and so worth it. They fit the natural, earthy vibe so well. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Plus I love anything coconut. Coconut cream, coconut water, coconut flavor, everything.

This hat just makes me happy. You can wear it so many different ways.

Plop it on when you have a bad hair day. With our move coming up, these have been frequent for me. Shower? What’s that? Get dressed and presentable? Not sure I understand.

Hope you love the hat and that it inspired you!

Isn’t it a great day to be alive? Me thinks yes.

    Love the hat more that I’ve seen it from ALL angles, and as always looks adorable on you! I didn’t realize it had a bit of a slouch in the back and I like that. And looks super comfy.

    Love the hat Chandi! Wish I could knit like you. Pleasssseeeeee make more You tube videos on the different knitting techniques. Pretty much got the knit and purl down and then that’s it. Oh, and I have a problem holding the yarn correctly when TRYING to knit. I’m a knitting mess since I’ve always done crochet! You are too cute!!:))

      I am a knitting mess as well – just trying to figure things out – I crocheted about 10 years ago so a video on the best ways to hold yarn would be awesome… After you get settled of course.

    You are the cutest model I have seen in ages. Your husband is a rockin’ paparazzi for you too. His love shines thru in each shot and the looks you give him as he focuses on you are inimitable. I hope you all have a great move, stressful as they can be.

    I love this hat as well! Bought the pattern and had to start over twice. Kept getting holes. So I’m doing it backwards to crown and will add the brim. Mine did not look like yours in the back when I tried the correct way. Uhh! and it only took you a few hours ? that’s just not right. Love your sight.

    Hi, I’m looking forward to knitting this hat! Just love your work. Might I suggest a book for you to enjoy listening to? Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Love her work. It is the first book in an 8..still counting..series. Thanks, again for your lovely work!
