Reversible hat with a lot of slouch.

The hat is very loose fitted, but the size is easy to modify

Knitted in soft Rowan Felted Tweed, makes this a light and warm hat – and with a deep brim, you can make the hat extra warm just by folding the brim up. I used 1 ball and very few meters of the second ball.

My hat is very loose fitted, so if you like a tight hat, cast on less sts to begin with. Just remember that the “slouchyness” of the hat gets less slouchy th fewer stitches, you cast on.

I have also knitted the hat in a soft and drapey 100% alpaca with 8 less sts and with a bit tighter gauge.

This hat can easily get modified smaller by casting on less stitches at the very beginning, just remember the rib is multiple by 4.

The pattern is very intuitive and easy to remember. Perfect TV-knitting and can be knitted in one evening or two.

Instant gratification!
