This hat is pure decadence. The yarn used is uniquely hand-spun in a blend of guilt-free mink and luxurious cashmere, resulting in a fabric with a wonderfully soft halo. Knit into a classic slouchy shape, it drapes like a dream and feels even better.

bécot: (french) a small affectionate kiss, as like a peck from a bird. (how to prounounce this word)

NOTES
Hat is worked in the round from brim to crown.
Use a very gentle hand when working with the suggested yarn, as tugging too firmly could cause the yarn to break.
