This feminine, textured hat provides just a subtle bit of slouch. The pretty Drawn Loop Rib band creates a soft framing of the face, while the lighthearted Little Birds stitch pattern in the main body of the hat plays with all the beautiful colours of the yarn.

BIRDIE was specifically designed to make the most of hand-dyed yarns, with stitch patterns that work to break up pooling. However, it would look fabulous knit in a solid or semi-solid, as well. Keep in mind that in order to still see all the work you have put into the stitch patterns of this slouch hat, you want your yarn choice to have a colour that is not too dark.
