I have been wanting to design a slouchy hat for some time that used only one skein of bulky-weight yarn, but wasn’t too bulky of a hat style to be my go-to hat. I came up with this wonderfully rhythmic series of stacked arches, with a simple but concise close for the crown. It’s a quick, soothing knit that will be a wardrobe staple for years to come!
