Raindrop: A Slouch Hat
This hat is the outcome of a cold and rainy spring in 2013. The decorative yarn overs are like little raindrops, and the generous fit ensures a warm hat. Perfect for any season, this hat is functional and eye-catching at the same time. Knitters of all levels can follow along to the simple written instructions.

The hat is knit in the round, bottom-up. Two pages of PDF instructions include abbreviated written instructions.
