The Sleep Season Slouch is an easy knit hat with a ribbed border and then super-speedy stockinette stitch. This simple style shows off speckled yarn oh-so-well! Finish the hat with a pom pom for maximum cuteness and then get ready for the compliments. This little number would make a great gift, as it knits up in no time in hand-dyed DK weight yarn.
Rose Bloom has written a simple and easy to follow pattern, great for new knitters who have just learned to knit in the round, or more experienced knitters who are looking for the perfect basic slouch pattern.
