Laharum is a great little slouch beanie with a delicate colourwork framing the brim. However, this colourwork is much simpler than you would think; only one colour is ever worked in a round, with the illusion deceptively created by slipped stitches. This is sure to be a favourite!

Laharum is named after a bush location in rural Victoria, Australia.

Laharum is knit seamlessly in the round from the brim upwards. Simple decreases are used to shape the crown.

Three colours are used to create this hat. Please note the smaller sizes have less slouch.
