Inspired by one of our favorite fairy tale creatures. This slouchy hat folds over to button in the back, creating the illusion of a goblin’s head.

Because of the button, I haven’t included instructions for children under 3 years.

Note: Some knitters have found the hat to be too short to fold over like the photos. You may want to add another full stripe before decreasing.
