Pattern Description:

I pondered over this pattern for some time, as I absolutely loved the way it looked in both Malabrigo Twist and Malabrigo Worsted. Twist has a lot more heft to it, and the stitch definition is amazing. Worsted is so soft and fuzzy and very lightweight. Both have wonderful qualities to make them favorites of mine. There is a very slight difference in row gauge, which makes the Twist hat just a tad longer, but both versions the are the same circumference. Beanie, A Little Slouch, or Extra Slouchy, which one do you want to make?

Super textured and super cute, you will be sure to turn heads when wearing this gorgeous hat!
