A relaxed slouch with vertical ribs that flow from brim to crown to keep knitting interesting. Choose from a regular size (shown here in Tweed Imps) or a slightly longer version for extra slouch (shown here in Spiced Plum). The smooth lines created from alternating knits and purls made us think of Belinda, typing the playlist for her weekend hangout on her beloved vintage typewriter: the Hermes Baby.

This unisex design is the perfect project while you chat with friends or a beginner knitter ready to knit in the round. Worked up in a single skein of precious handdyed this is a hat to treat yourself with in more ways than one.
