This slouchy unisex hat, with or without the optional pom pom, is all about texture and comfort.

The seed stitch chevron and diamonds pattern is enough to keep your interest, and to show off the lovely yarn, but isn’t too complicated.

This hat is a companion to my short story, The Fabric of the Stitches. In that story, Janie works on a hat pattern while recovering from a horrible loss. This is a variation of her first version, Janie’s Diamond Hat.
