This gorgeous slouchy Hat was originally published in The Knitter, issue 32, and is now available as an individual pattern.
The subtle stitch pattern, inspired by peacock feathers, grows out of the brim into the body. A gentle gathering at the crown enhances the slouchy design.
Pattern is worked from the bottom up and includes charts for both the stitch pattern and the crown shaping. 5 sizes are included.
