The first installment in the 2012 Stitch Red campaign, this slouchy hat features the intriguing and fun to knit Hearts of Oak stitch pattern. Subtle, textured heart shapes are formed by increases and decreases, and while the right and wrong sides of the fabric look different, they both look fantastic. You may even be inclined to wear it inside out!
