Pucker Up is the perfect transition piece from winter to spring. Whimsical and romantic, eyelets and pleats make this slouchy hat simple and easy to construct. Pleat width controls slouch, so slouch a little or slouch a lot. Pucker Up and kiss winter good-bye!

Instruction is also offered for a Picot edging to soften & enhance Pucker Up’s whimsical nature. Work in a funky multicolor (model was worked in Malabrigo Worsted colorway Deja Vu) or in a soft cotton to top the perfect spring ensemble.

Sizes
20, 22, 24 inches

Note: I knit the Medium size for my 22 inch head and it is loose and slouchy. If you want a tighter fit you may want to go down a size.
