When I started this hat I wanted it to be something that I just couldn’t set down, but that also felt soothing to knit. A pattern you could finish in a weekend, and that looks great in everything from a natural undyed yarn, to more bold colors. This hat is all about the texture. It is addicting to knit as you move from one fun stitch pattern to the next. The different textures play well together to form a flattering slouchy style hat. Fun to knit and easy to wear!
