Oversized and slouchy, but with an interesting twist of braids and beads, this hat is fun to work up as well as wear. The Art-Deco style of the trim on this slouchy hat was inspired by a visit to Leighton House in London.
The main color uses about 2/3 of a a skein of Malabrigo, while the trim uses just small amounts of contrasting colors.
This hat is worked in seed stitch and features a delicate trim with garter stitch stripes, a braid stitch, and optional beading for a pretty, feminine look. The brim is ribbed for stability. It can be made in a close-fitting or slouchy style (shown).
This lovely hat is certainly achievable for a confident beginner.
19 stitches and 27 rows = 4 in/10cm in seed stitch (Moss stitch)

I have been knitting on and off since my teens, but became somewhat obsessed with it in 2007. I love squishy wools for the short, mild Los Angeles winters, and like cottons and blends for the rest of the year. I really believe that even beginner knitters can create something beautiful and useful, so I strive to keep patterns simple yet original. I am Goodstuff on Ravelry, and blog from time to time about knitting and life here: http://www.knitandtravelandsuch.blogspot.com/.
