Pattern Description:

This new pattern was inspired by a friend of mine who had a slouch hat that she loved so much she wore it almost every day, indoors and out last winter. It set me thinking about how much lovelier it would be if it was a handmade hat (hers was from a major clothing boutique) and how important that perfect slouch hat can be. From cold weather to bad hair; it's a wardrobe staple alright.

The perfect slouch hat for fall, this quick and easy knit works up fast on 4.5mm needles and worsted weight yarn. It's a great pattern for beginners; all you really need is knit, purl, cast on and cast off. The pattern makes it easy to 'read' your knitting as you go, making it a good TV project for seasoned knitters as well. Solid and variegated yarns both work well in the simple, geometric pattern. A cute moss stitch band with faux buttons adds a nice touch to the brim.
