Time to get cozy! This super comfy slouch is the perfect hat to wait out the winter in. Worked from the bottom up, it can be worked as long as you like, for extra slouchiness! The chevron pattern keeps the work interesting while you go. The crown decreases gradually so it lays beautifully, not all scrunched and bunched like some slouch hats. Add a pompom to the top, and you’re ready to go!

Sizes: To fit a head circumference of 19 – 23”/48 – 58 cm.

Techniques: Knitting in the round, increasing and decreasing, and basic chart reading.

Notions: 12 stitch markers (3 of one color, 9 of another), a balloon for blocking and an extra large pompom maker (optional).
