Homeless Outfit- "grunge hat"


Slouchy “Homeless outfit” Grunge Hat

What the hell is a “homeless outfit”?

It's the same nasty ass grungy clothing your ass wears all the time because it's comfortable. Almost everyone has some sort of “Homeless Outfit” even if it's just some ratty ass old sweatpants and your “Team Building Exercise '99” t-shirt. Whatever. You got one, I got one, no one gives a shit.

I made this hat for my “Homeless Outfit” so I could hide my gross ass hair underneath something.

Before We Begin:
I made this project to bust my stash, so there are roughly about 11 bits and pieces of yarn in this ugly thing.
Although it is primarily worsted weight material, there are some bulky yarns mixed in, as well as a spot of fingering weight, so there is no gauge.

No gauge.
Just wing that one, kid.
Also, this hat is slouchy, keep that in mind too.



What You Need:
-Size 5 DPN's
-Yarn- Either One Skien or bust your stash.
Keep in mind- No Gauge due to the bulkier yarns used, but if you use on type of yarn, use worsted.

So....this shit is mostly random as hell, but I will include a “key” of the colors I used for the “patterns” sake.

Hi! I found your blog via your new pattern in Ravelry and noticed you've had no comments on your blog. That sucks, because your projects are pretty damn cool.
My favorite is the homeless outfit hat.
Btw, my homeless outfit happens to be my knit pajamas, which I usually wear everywhere that's not important on days I'm not working. I'm going to have to make one of these here homeless hats to go with them, because my hair usually looks homeless on those days, too.

Keep it up!
