Slouchy Hat

Free to download

My daughter wanted the perfect slouchy. It is a very simple pattern, but seems to be a success as she hardly takes it off! You can use a heavy worsted to Aran weight single or combine two fingering to sport weights. It's a very forgiving pattern but generally the lighter weight the yarn the slouchier your hat will be.
