This slouchy stocking cap in multiple sizes knits up quickly in DK/light worsted yarn for a stylishly warm answer to mid-winter cold. The hat brim is worked in reversible herringbone rib and can be doubled back if desired; the pattern continues with a simple linear detail through the body. For maximum slouch, choose a very softly spun yarn and/or one that blends silky, relaxed fibers with wool. For snug fit, go down one size.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
