When it’s snowy and freezing I want comfort knitting—thick soft yarn and a fun, quick knit. This slouchy hat with an eye-catching leaf motif fits the bill. Add a pom pom to top it all off or leave it bare to show off the geometric crown shaping. The lace pattern keeps things interesting but is relatively simple to follow.
Both charted and written instructions are provided. This pattern is for the intermediate knitter. Skills needed: yo, k2tog, ssk, sl1k2togpsso.
SIZING: Beanie, 8.5” long; Slouchy, 9.5” long
Both sizes are 20” around and fit most adult heads.
