This slouchy hat is naturally asymmetrical, giving it a unique shape and style. The easy slipped stitch pattern gradually decreases to a peak at the top of the hat while the stockinette section grows. This creates the perfect amount of slouch. This pattern is worked in the round. The stitch pattern is written and charted.

The Gratification Hat is the fifth and final pattern in the Winter Comfort Collection which also includes the Contentment Cowl, Sustenance Scarf, Indulgence Wrap, and Tranquility Infinity Scarf. This is a collection of 5 cold weather accessory patterns in neutral colours and natural fibres.
