Filigree Slouch is the sister pattern to Filigree Beanie.

With this design I wanted to explore how scale affected the intricate stitch pattern, and the results are very pleasing! The motif alternates around the Hat with a clever crown like finish to the pattern as it heads into a gently gathered crown.

The pattern is provided in 5 sizes, and is worked from the bottom up. Charts for the stitch motif accompany the written pattern.
