This playful hat features slipped stitches and stranded colorwork to achieve the geometric shapes. The garter stitch motifs pop against a stockinette stitch main color background. You can wear the ribbed brim folded for cozy warmth or you can wear it unfolded for a slouchy effect. Choose DK weight yarn like West Wool Tandem and enjoy the entertaining stitch patterns for this quick knit!
