A slouchy, worsted weight hat that’s perfect for those who prefer a little texture with their literary puns. Borne of a love/hate relationship with the herringbone stitch, after a few rows of herringbone, this fun knit surrenders and segues into a playful mock herringbone, keeping the smiles going as you knit the twists and turns.
