Silk Cloud and Pebble work together and alone to create the shifting textures of Slouch 1. Purl ridges accentuate Silk Cloud’s lustre, their concentric circles decreasing to a single dot. Short rows subtly enhance the hat’s slouch. Pattern includes illustrated tutorials for German Short Rows and a tubular cast on. Slouch 1 is worked in the round from brim to crown using knit, purl, and 2- or 3-stitch decreases. The pattern instructions are written only.
