The medical term Alexin means to “ward off” … so wear this hat to stay warm, well and stylish at the same time! Besides, how many times did your mother tell you to“cover your head or you’ll catch cold.”

You will LOVE the way this hat wears!

This pattern uses slip stitch ribbing and linked stitches for a perfect slouchy hat with a knitted look and drape.

The construction allows for easily changing the depth of the ribbed brim and the amount of “slouch”.

Stitch markers are necessary for the decrease portion of the hat!
