Crazy Easy Everyone Needs a Slouchy Beret-FO

I finished it up tonight and admit this, I really like this hat and I really like the pakucho yarn, lots.

Pattern is: Crazy Easy Everyone Needs a Slouchy Beret from Nutella Dreams on Etsy aka Ele Shnier/Thnkdfrent patterns.

Yarn used: pakucho 100% organic cotton in Brown Cafe. Only 1 1/2 skeins total for the hat (I don't get it, the pattern called for 2 skeins of Sugar N Cream, but this took 1 1/2 50 gram skeins, about 132 yards)

The pakucho says to allow for 10%-15% shrinkage when drying if using a dryer and the color will intensify with washing. Looks like I'll make another for a friend.

And no, I have no clue as to what is hanging off my left eyelash-nothing was there-must be something in the flash or lens-I'll blame Elena since she took the pic ;).

Oh and April, the sizing was dead on-don't crochet tightly!

Have a great weekend everyone!
