This hat is an easy, beginner-level, slightly slouchy hat knit in the round for both men, women, and children. It takes between 40 g. and 70 g. of yarn, depending on the size you make and your gauge. This is the perfect slouchy hat for the crisp days of fall and the cold days of winter. This is a quick knit that would be perfect for Christmas gift knitting too!
