This slouchy hat is named for the French quotation mark << », the guillemet. Simple knits and purls create a chevron pattern reminiscent of this handsome punctuation. The hat is finished with an interesting decrease that makes a circle detail. The Guillemet Hat’s construction starts with knitting the band lengthwise until it fits comfortably around the head. The band is neatly joined and the edge picked up for continuing with the crown of the hat. This method of construction means the hat can be made to fit any size head, with any yarn, with no need for pesky gauge swatches! US raised and produced Fancy Tiger Heirloom Romney gives a rustic look to this textured hat.
