OH. MY. GOD! Did someone say mohair? If you love fluffy hats, you’re going to love Janice. This bright slouchy hat is fun and simple to knit…and a little twisted. Want to use that lonely ball of mohair/silk that’s languishing in your stash? Or that irresistible ball of fluff you scored at your local fleece festival? Go for it! Janice accommodates most lace-weight mohair yarns paired with most sport-weight or heavy DK yarns.

OH. MY. GOD! Janice 2.0! Still fluffy. Still slouchy. But now in a new yarn combo--with new crown shaping--for a less gathered, more modern fit. Other changes? Are you kidding? No one messes with Janice! Both versions are available as free downloads.
