Do You Like My Slouchy Hat?
The children’s book “Go, Dog. Go!” by P.D. Eastman was always a favorite of our children. There is a series of times one of the dogs asks another “Do you like my hat?” Every time I make a hat I try it on and ask our children the same question. Even as teenagers they break into the cadence of the rhyming story. I originally knit a beanie version of the hat in DK weight yarn and named it “Do You Like My Hat?”
This hat is knit with a worsted weight yarn and has interesting linked cables finishing neatly at the top. It is a bit slouchier hence the revised name which keeps with the theme.
