This highly-textured slouchy hat was inspired by the cutouts on the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge, which frame the sky and clouds behind. The slip-stitch pattern is both written and charted, and is easy even for a newer knitter to master. The stitch is quite stretchy, so choose a size 2-3” smaller than your head for a good fit. Make the Suspension Cowl for a matching set!
