Rd 1 of “Hat Body” clarification please note that there are two types of repetition during this round to make the instructions as short as possible (asterisks and parenthesis). Not only will you repeat the “k1, p1” instructions inside the parenthesis 5 times, but you should repeat ALL of the instructions between the asterisks section until you are left with 1 st, which you are instructed to knit.

If I were to write out the pattern to the round fully, it would read: k2tog, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k2tog, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k2tog, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k2tog, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k2tog, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, then k1.

This simple slouch is quick to knit up with bulky yarn, and is satisfying to wear. You can easily modify the length to make it less/more slouchy to fit your taste.

Included last in the instructions is a tutorial on how to make pom-poms for this hat. Feel free to only print out the instructions to the hat, and just read the pom-pom instructions on the computer to save on ink.

Skill Level: Late-beginner Difficulty: Easy

Method: worked seamlessly in the round with dpns, or by using the “Magic Loop” method with 1 circular needle.

Yarn: 110 yds of a bulky/12 ply yarn (pattern seen in discontinued Alafoss Hespu-Lopi yarn);

You may need extra yarn if you add extra length to the hat.
