The Roof! The Roof! The Roof is on Fire! Hat Party

Here's a first for the OneSize blog: a hat party!  I was trying to find a hat style that I could recommend for different face shapes, hair lengths, etc.  You can check out my Ravelry projects for some disasterous experiments from a person with a very round face.
When I got to the Star-Crossed Slouchy Beret, a free Ravelry download by Natalie Larson, I knew I hit the jackpot.  I couldn't find a single example of this hat looking bad on anyone! Seriously! Forrealz! Not a one!
For this first hat party, I won't bother with the yarn and needle specs.  It seems that you can knit this in craft wire on pencils and it will still look great (but, if you do try that, please send me a photo!)
I'll just add the photos and link to the Rav pages and blogs, if applicable.


In Conclusion:
This pattern was written in Pixie Dust on unicorn rainbows.  I will have a hard time following this up with another hat party.  Go crazy with this thing.  Pick a color that makes you happy, because if your hat makes you happy, it will automatically make you look good.

Speak Up:
Have you knit this pattern? What are the best yarns for this hat?  Show us your favorite colors! Link to your projects in the comments.


  1. Thanks for posting my hunter orange version! Yes it's for hunting with my hubby, but at least when I do, I'm stylin'! :)

  2. Since I knit this hat for three different women (myself included) with three different complections, three different hair lengths/styles, and three different face shapes, I hands down think this was the best hat for your first hat party! It looks great in any yarn, too. Thanks for celebrating an awesome pattern, and thanks for the photo op!

  3. I always look terrible in hats so this seems like an interesting challenge. I'll have to check my stash and have a go.
