This is a quick, easy pattern for a super cute knitted slouch hat. This works up very fast, without too much shaping, and is ideal for beginner knitters. The simple knit-purl design is patterned on every row, but the results are super pretty and textural!

The yarn has quite a bit of drape for super slouch, and the hat is a forgiving fit. The medium sized hat should fit most adults.

Construction notes:

The pattern is in multiples of 10, with no edge stitches required. If you wish to increase or decrease the hat size, or adjust for a different weight of yarn, simply add or subtract 10 stitches from your cast on. Beginner knitters who are not yet used to reading their stitches may find it helpful to place a marker every 10 stitches, and use a different coloured marker to mark the end of the round.
