Slipped stitches and variegated yarn help to create the wonderful flower garden that adorns this hat and because you are only ever working with one yarn at a time it is a really quick and simple knit.

It’s a great project for using up leftover sock yarn, and if you like this hat there is a matching shawl too.

Flores is knit from the bottom up, in the round, in one piece. This is a written pattern with no charts, the pattern includes comprehensive notes on all of the techniques used.
