Jay Street Slouch
Questions on this pattern? Visit my group.
I designed this hat as part of the Ravelympics 2010 Designer Original Dance event. I named it the Jay Street Slouch as the inspiration for this hat came as I was standing on the Jay St-Borough Hall platform (in NYC) waiting for the F train.
Thanks to all my test knitters: adriennec, hellskitsch, knittygrrlku, irunnaked and pikkle. I couldn’t have done this without you.
