A simple textured braid with an interesting decrease method makes this hat engaging to knit as well as fashionable to wear. The extra-slouchy nature allows this hat to be an easy fit for most head-sizes. Using just 1 skein of most sock-yarns, it’s the perfect project to help you work through your stash or perhaps sample that new skein you’ve had your eyes on for ages.

Sizes: One size fits most adult heads
