The Icing Swirl Hat ... a very slouchy version!

It's finished! My first Ysolda knit the "Icing Swirl Hat", mine is a very slouchy version!

I decided to use the "larger" size in the pattern and ended up with a very slouchy but Oh so comfy beanie beret. I love it and it is going to be perfect for winter when its super chilly. I can slop this on my head and be toasty all day long!

I also think I may have stuffed up and added a couple of extra rows and this enhanced the "sloppy-ness" but I'm not too phased. It's all part of learning really and this pattern was a great one to learn on.

I think as a relatively "beginner" knitter the only way to learn is to make mistakes, and if the pattern changes slightly I tend to try and role with it! Like in this pattern! I still love this slouchy beanie and LOVE the colour too! This was definitely a great starter Ysolda pattern and I plan on building up my knitting skills through practice to tackle another Ysolda knit!! Watch this space!! :o)


  1. I love it! Particularly the swirls. As a beginner knitter you should be proud. I have only ever managed to knit a scarf! Maybe I should give this a try

  2. That colour looks great on you! You've done a great job Ellie!

  3. Great job Ellie!!!

    You're right, the only way to learn is through your mistakes, hell I've made plenty of them and still do... LOL!!!
