“Sl-ouch!” is a slouchy hat with a wide, double-thick brim. It’s so named because I knit it while I had a sore shoulder. Call it dedication, or call it a glutton for punishment, but I had to see it through. This is the result! I came up with it while working on my 1 Infinite Loop hat. I devised a new way (at least I’ve never come across it) of working a provisional cast on for the “Sl-ouch!”. A photo tutorial is provided in the pattern.

Please note: this hat has not been tested, but I’m fairly confident there are no errors. If you do find an error, please let me know so I can correct it!
