A fingering weight hat like the Sandrine Slouch is so very nice for the transitional months of spring and fall, as well as for indoors during wintertime. A tactile delight to knit and wear in Intrepid Tulips Cashmere Silk, you’ll never want to take it off. Most of the cables in the hat can be easily worked without a cable needle, and Sandrine can be combined with any of the other pieces in The Virescent Collection to create a matching set.

This pattern contains both fully charted and written instructions. You will receive three separate files -- one for each size.
