Small chevrons inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains adorn the body of this hat. Worn tight around the head or more laid back and slouchy, the modern details and bright colors bring something new to your winter wardrobe. The bulky yarn and dense fabric make this hat incredibly warm. The chevron pattern is worked with dropped yarn overs and delayed cables. An interesting, quick knit!

The finished hat measures 18” (19”, 20”) to fit 20” (21”, 22”) head. This hat would work easily for a man or a woman. If you want even more slouch to your hat, you can increase the length of the work before starting decreases.

I have added instructions on stranding 2 pieces of DK yarn. You will need twice the yardage if you chose to strand.
