The Pure Slouch hat is a relaxing, no-thinking, Netflixing kind of hat. It is the perfect project to have on hand when you want a no-nonsense project. This slouchy hat is knit from the bottom up in the round. The pattern is written to optimize your yardage usage. I have provided the specific yardage necessary to complete the crown decreases, which allows you to knit without playing yarn chicken. This pattern looks great in solids, speckles, and self-striping yarns. No muss. No fuss. Just a fun hat that goes with everything…especially giant pom poms!
