“Skinny stripes, slipped stitches, and gathered slouch combine with the lightweight nature of Loft to create a hat for all occasions. Worked in the round from the brim up, this hat features a slipped-stitch triangular panel to create slouch and ruching without excess body. The single-row striped fabric accentuates this panel by contrasting horizontal and vertical lines, and highlights the complex, heathered tones of the yarn.” – Bristol Ivy


  • Hat is worked circularly from the bottom up (brim to crown); all rounds are worked from RS of fabric.
  • The slipped-stitch triangular panel will cause one side of the hat to gather slightly as you work. This creates the structured slouchy fit of the final silhouette.

130 yards of Color 1 (shown in “Woodsmoke”)
95 yards of Color 2 (shown in “Old World”)

Two skeins (1 per color) of Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 50g/275 yards); Note you can make two identical hats (or reverse the colors) with this amount of yarn
