The Nancy Hat has a deep 2x2 ribbing and slouches slightly. A textured stitch is used after the ribbing.

I wanted a hat in which I can wear my long hair down, but I can also wear the hat with my long hair up.

Most hats that I made can’t handle my long hair up held with a big clip, and this Nancy Hat can.

For this design I used 128 Superwash by Cascade Yarn, but you can substitute with any bulky/chunky weight yarn as long as you have approximately 128 yards.

Several suggested substitutions:
Ultra Alpaca Chunky by Berroco
Vintage Chunky by Berroco
Lamb’s Pride Bulky by Brown Sheep
Tundra by the Fibre Company
Mecha by Malabrigo
