An easy Waffle Stitch pattern gives this hat great texture and makes it fun and easy to knit. It's a quick project and it's just in time for cool weather. The 'slouchy' is a modern take on the classic winter knitted hat. Worked in a bright colour, it will be a hit with any teenager. Or pick your own favourite colour and make a stylish hat for yourself!

I am a knitwear designer living in northern Canada. I love to design and knit hats, mittens, scarves, and socks. In my climate, knitwear is a necessity! I like clean and simple designs and am drawn to cables, ribbing, stockinette, and classic stitch patterns. I especially love working with natural fibres like merino wool, cotton, silk, and cashmere.
