I have recently fallen in love with the simplicity and beauty of slipped stitches. I really enjoy the way slipped stitch ridges look on reverse stockinette background and thought this would look great in a hat.

Blakely is constructed with a simple, repetitive stitch pattern that leads to a relaxing knitting experience. Very quickly you will memorize the pattern and rhythm of the hat. After blocked, the slipped stitch ridges really pop, creating a very fun and easy to wear hat.
