Basic Skills Necessary:

  • I would rate this as an advanced beginner knitter. You need to know how to knit in the round with circular needles and double pointed needles. Simple instructions for making into a slouchy hat are included!

Pattern Description:

This simple little cotton hat is the perfect accessory for any little one in your life! The ribbed bottom gives some stretch to go over a noggin!

Any worsted medium weight (4) yarn will work. Great in washable wool for the colder months! Try stripes!

Great project for car or airplane traveling, kids team practices, waiting at the doctors office! Easily fit a small skein and needles in your bag!

If you would like to try your hand at cables and are new to them, my Classic Cabled Cowl Tutorial is for you! You can visit my workshop right here on Craftsy! Just click on the "Workshops" button at the top of the page for all the info!

If you're fearful of doing cables, fear no more! I will show you step by step how they work. You will not believe how easy it is. (So easy, in fact, that you1/4ll wonder why you didn1/4t try them much sooner!)

The pattern uses just one skein of super bulky yarn that can be found in any hobby store or your favorite yarn shop. Plus, it's versatile enough to work as an accessory for women, men and teens!
