Slouchy hats and berets are all the rage this year. And why not? They're fun to knit, forgiving in fit for a wide range of head sizes, and don't give you hat hair when you take them off. Tammie is a great choice for summer and fall travels, whether to Scotland or just around your neighborhood! The ribbing helps it fold up nicely in your suitcase, and the worsted bamboo/cotton/elastic yarn means it'll have a good blend of heft and coolness.
