A stockinette stitch rolled edge quickly transitions into double knitting to produce a clever and practical brim. The front layer is bound off, creating space for little pockets all around the hat. Then, a background of stripes features traveling slipped stitches that spiral and skid toward the top of the hat. Options for a beanie or slouchy style hat are provided in three different sizes.
Hat stretches up to 3″/7.5cm to comfortably fit the head. Medium beanie and medium slouchy versions are shown on a 22.5″/57cm head.
Samples are shown in Sweet Georgia Yarns Superwash Sock (beanie version) and The Plucky Knitter MCN Fingering (slouchy version). Other listed yarns are suggested alternatives.
