Knit your own super slouchy summer weight hat. Another one of my designs taken from a few hats I’ve seen on the street and combining my favorite aspects of each.

It’s widely striped in warm weather colors, has a rolled brim, instead of standard ribbing, and is an exaggerated slouch making it hip and extra comfortable.

The finished hat as shown fits most adult or teen-sized heads, 20-23”.

The pattern is suitable for a crafter who knows the basics of knitting. You’ll need to be familiar with using circular and double point needles; also need to know how to cast on, knit, purl, decrease and change colors to make this hat. I’d say it was geared toward an intermediate knitter, but if you’re a beginner, take advantage of the videos on youtube to show you step by step what each term means. and other knitting sites also have instructions to help you out.

The pattern calls for worsted weight cotton blend yarn, but any weight yarn to get your gauge would be OK.
