Free your fingering weight! During a recent stash inventory I realized that I have a lot of sock yarn that’s been gathering dust. Irving Park was born out of the idea that my sock yarn needed its own day in the sun.

Irving Park is a slouchy beret with ruching detail; ruching is one of my favorite techniques because it’s dead simple to do and produces spectacular results. The end result is a hat that’s perfect for those of us with bangs, or for days your mother would tell you to wear a hat but when you don’t want to squash your hair.
