How do you make a slouchy Hat elegant? With a fine-grained textural stitch, silky yarn and an intriguing envelope finish. Then again, if you want the texture without the slouch, there’s a neat beanie version that offers structured crown shaping and a deep folded brim.

Written and charted instructions are provided for a range of five sizes. The Hat is worked bottom-up in the round, and finished with Kitchener stitch.
