Slouch 2

Cima and Pebble work together and alone to create the shifting textures of Slouch 2. The two tucks in the crown give an unusual finish, while short rows subtly enhance the hat’s slouch. Pattern includes illustrated tutorials for German Short Rows and a tubular cast on. Slouch 2 is worked in the round from brim to crown, using knit, purl, and k2tog/ssk decreases. The pattern instructions are written only.
