A dense and warm hat, worked in fingering weight wool with a slip stitch pattern in 2 colours that shows off slight variations in colour in hand dyed yarn. The hat can either be worn in a slouchy style with ample fit or as a beret styled hat when pushed down at the nape (directions are also given for a shorter beanie style hat, if you’d like a snugger fit).

The ribbing of the brim is taller near the face but much narrower at the back of the neck (to keep the ribbing from folding in the nape). The pattern is worked with a bigger needle size than the brim, since the slip stitch pattern pulls in a lot. This pattern works best with wool or with any other grippy yarn.

A big Grazie to Michela LaMicky for translating this pattern into Italian!
Et un grand merci à Patricia patamodeler pour la traduction en Français!
