The Sleep Season Slouch is an easy knit hat with a ribbed border and then super-speedy stockinette stitch. This simple style shows off the hand-dyed yarn oh-so-well! Finish the hat with a pom pom for maximum cuteness and then get ready for the compliments. This little number would make a great holiday gift, as it knits up in no time. Sleep Season Single DK is a super-soft, superwash merino wool, dreamy soft against your skin.
