slouch hat

Slouch Hat: Embroider flowers using Bonbons to give this hat a unique and personalized look.

Hats are a more important fashion accessory than ever and the slouchy hat is the most popular style of all. The slouchy hat is a beanie with an extra flap that hangs down in the back.

Some of the celebrities who have been photographed wearing this style include Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Mary-Kate Olsen. It's even popular with men, including Jake Gyllenhaal (who has been spotted in the Lion Brand Yarn Studio on 15th Street in New York City!).

Franklin Habit

Popular writer/illustrator/knitter Franklin Habit joins us for his monthly column combining humor with the unique point of view only a yarncrafter possesses.

When a non-knitter asks a questions about my knitting, that question is most often, "How long will it take you to finish that?" or the common variation, "How long would it take you to make me a [type of knitted thing]?"

So I explain that a hat may require several evenings, particularly if worked in a complicated technique or a fine yarn. I tell them the average number of stitches in a pair of socks (eight million) or a plain sweater (seven hundred trillion) and that completion of the latter may take months.
