I love a deep ribbing on my hats, but I often find that I fold it back at the nape of my neck for the perfect amount of slouch. In this design I decided to play with short rows on the ribbing and make a hat that would slouch exactly as I want it to without any adjustments.

Featuring a bit of simple colorwork to keep things interesting (my blue is Pacific Sailor and the accent is Tree Fort) and knit up in beautiful organic merino yarn from A Verb For Keeping Warm, this is a quick, satisfying project that works up in no time.

It’s a great excuse to try some of Kristine’s gorgeous skeins, and it’s a good project to tote around and work on during these last days of summer….
