Daisetta Slouchy Hat Knitting Pattern
Rowan’s Cashmere Tweed yarn is lofty and light all on its own. When you add KidSilk Haze, you have a most wonderful fabric. I was immediately impressed by how light the fabric felt. It doesn’t require complicated stitches to shine, just a bit of interest. I’ve chosen a traveling stitch pattern and twisted stitches to make Daisetta Slouchy Hat a complimentary hat to my McClellan Pullover pattern. My McClellan Pullover is also light and airy, and this hat has just a bit more heft, for warmth.
Width x Flat Length: 10.5” x 9” (total circ. approx. 21”)

This hat is knit bottom up and I’ve recommended a 16” needle, until you switch for the decreases at the top. The YO & SSK sts or “legs” will travel to the left as you knit the body of the hat. I have recommended a 16” needle, to avoid the inconvenience of the sts traveling to another needle.
