Sloppy Joe is modern, casual Hat, which drapes back allowing the wearer to tuck up their hair should they wish. The gentle shaping allows the Hat to be worn to the back for a modern, slouchy look.
This pattern is ideal for beginning knitters, and is also a perfect showcase for your gorgeous hand-spun yarns!
Pattern is worked top down and in the round.
