This is an easy to make, seamless slouchy beanie that is quick to make, and it is very popular with my teenage boys and their friends.

The Take A Hike Slouchy was inspired by my middle son who is a very active Scout, and as a Scout he takes part in many competitions, from sailing to hiking, they have loads of fun.  It gets cold and can be windy in Cape Town, South Africa, and I have, over the years made many, many beanies for my boys, and their friends - usually the night before a party, one of my sons will ask me to quickly make a beanie for a friend as a gift.
