Adult Slouchy Hat (with or without Earflaps)

Oh boy, am I having fun designing these new hats!  Here is another Adult hat in a Slouchy style with or without Earflaps.  This hat is made using the Afghan stitch (also known as Tunisian Crochet)

Pattern will be available soon on CUP
Next one on the burners is a set for a 9-12 month old.  The set will have a jacket, hat and bib pants.  These will also be done in the Afghan stitch.

So busy knitting!

Oh wow!  I can't believe that it has been more than a year since my last post! :-O  Life sure gets in the way of making regular posts here like I started out doing.  This year hasn't been an easy one for me.  The end result is that I will be moving (soon, I hope) to a small apartment.  The one really good thing about that is that I will have no more maintenance, snow shoveling, grass mowing,  It will be me, alone, in my  new apartment.  I'm also looking forward to only having to clean up after  SO, those of you who have my snail mail address may want to send me an email to give me a nudge to let you know what my new addy know who you are!

On to the real reason for my post though.  I've been on a yarn kick lately.  It started out making Car Seat Blankies, went on to making hat & mitten sets for babies and has graduated to designing my own hats in knit and afghan stitch.  I'm have an absolute blast!  If any of you are knitters and are looking for gifts for babies, check out this hat pattern.

0-3 months, 3-6 months & 6-12 months, 3 styles
These hats lead to this next hat.  This hat is for adults (head circumference 21-23") and combines a scarf with the hat for a very fun hat to wear when it is cold outside.
Scarf Tail is 45" long
I'm having SO much fun designing these hats!  I'm working on another adult hat with a variation and a set for babies that has a jacket, bib pants and adorable hat.  So much yarn and so little time!
