PASSIONATE. VIBRANT. BOLD.

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 was designed to accommodate a wide range of mohair-style yarns. Be bold! After all, you can’t use the original yarns…they’re discontinued, just like Janice.

Although these exact yarns/colours have been
discontinued, this pattern is quite forgiving and will work
with a variety of yarns, as long as the weights are close enough to get gauge. Mix it up by using a light or a dark colour for both the MC and CC, or a light colour for the MC and bright colour for the CC. Be uninhibited, just like Janice!
