Some of the things women go through just to be cute. I mean…. we wax our eyebrows, upper lips and other various places that I won’t even mention! We wear high heel shoes that after 2 hours are killing our feet. We spend countless amounts of time and money on our hair, make-up and clothes! Why? Just to be cute……
Well after you’ve done all the above mentioned, you need to make yourself this “Just to be Cute” Slouchy Beanie. I designed it with no other purpose in mind. Many of the hats I design are made with a yarn that’s sure to keep you warm in the winter or keep your head shaded in the summer. Just to be Cute slouchy is neither. You simply wear it for looks and why not? You wear all other types of accessories just to be cute don’t you? The perfect earrings and necklace would be a great addition to top off your cuteness while wearing the slouchy beanie!
I used Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton for this project and loved it. I thought it was perfect and allowed each stitch to show itself within the hat. If you’ve never used it before, you can read about it on Yarn Discovery and see the other project I made using the yarn. Craftsy also has great prices for the yarn too.

Do not fasten off. Measure out enough yarn to weave through every other sc.
Take your tapestry needle and weave under the loops of every other sc around, pull the yarn tightly. This will close up the hat. Sew the top of the hat with a few stitches for security. Weave in and fasten off.
