This hat started as an adapted pattern and after reworking the lace and crown a few times, I created my own version. The long decrease creates a great hat to stick in all your hair in on a cold walk.

This pattern is great for advanced-beginner knitters who are looking to make a comfy slouchy hat. It’s easy to read and knits with worsted-weight yarn. The finished hat fits heads approximately 22-24 inches (stretched out).

Materials required to knit hat:
65g of worsted or aran weight yarn
US 9/5.5mm circular needle, 16’ / 40 cm
8mm circular needle 16’ / 40cm and dpn

Skills: knit stitch, purl stitch, yarn overs, decreases and increases, knitting in the round
