A bit of slouch and a pop of color on the stranded crown of this hat make it a fun, easy, and quick knit in worsted yarn. One skein for the main color and scrap amounts of yarn for the crown are all you need. Add a pom pom in a contrasting color to kick the color play up a notch.
A slightly heavier worsted weight yarn gives the fabric nice body. The main color uses approximately 140 yards, the contrast crown uses approximately 22 yards, and the pom pom another 20 or so yards. Spunky Eclectic Targhee Classic and Madelinetosh Vintage work nicely.
