This pattern is intended for Intermediate to Experienced knitters.

This relaxed fit slouch hat is a knock-off of a commercially sold hat. It features a leaf pattern across the front of the hat body and horizontal welts around the back of the hat. Short rows of ribbed twists create a brim which is long in the front and short in the back, to help keep the hat in place. It’s finished with an optional pom pom at the crown.

A number of different techniques are incorporated into the pattern, but none are terribly difficult, and all are explained in the pattern.

Full written instructions are provided as well as charts, for those who prefer them.
