A slouchy cap with a different topper
Blocks of Color make for a great “Stash Buster” & This is a Blockbuster of a Stashbuster hat.
Knit in the round with a turned under hem, it uses up those small, leftover balls of yarn. Any colors work, so make brave choices. Make it bold with a TopKnot or play it safe with a plain top. Use wild colors or play it safe with 5 different shades of the same color.
Unisex in 3 sizes, Child, Small Adult & Large Adult. The hat can be made longer by adding more rounds of each color. Choose size according to final head circumference. The colors chosen make it a “guys” hat or a “girls” cap.
This free pattern is a great way to learn a new topper technique. A topknot is not as hard as it might look. Enjoy!
