Pattern Notes
A textured slouchy hat is a stylish fall accessory. Morel features an elongated wheat stitch with pretty eyelet detail at the brim. The ribbing along the brim will stretch to fit many sizes, but there are instructions for a small and large hat. The hat is designed to be unisex, but if you feel that the eyelet is too feminine, you can knit the yarn overs twisted to close them up. Included in the PDF is a recipe for a Spicy Mushroom Noodle Bowl dish, both the recipe and hat will warm you up on a chilly fall day. Recipe by the very talented Keekadeek!
