Evolution of the green beanie

Although I didn't mind the construction of the original, I just felt it made me look a little bit 'egg-head' so last night I ripped it back and re-knitted it to have a bit more slouch and worked 'pin-wheel' decreases at the crown (my own terminology, it's not a technical term).

It turned out so much better than the previous version and in doing this I have created a new pattern for myself, or anyone else who might be interested in knitting a fast and cosy beanie style hat with a little slouch :-)

It's the first time I have knitted something without a pattern and I am so pleased at how it turned out!

I think I will be posting it up on here and Ravelry as a free pattern very soon!
