The Adiri Slouchy Hat is yet another design in the stitch pattern I developed for the Adiri Cowl and Adiri (pattern), the pullover. I just can’t get enough of it. The hat has a lot of character and can look elegant or funky depending on your mood. It rarely leaves my head these days. It’s a fun, quick knit, and perfect for holiday gifting. In a masculine color it would work for a man as well as a woman.
The pattern is suitable for advanced beginner cable and lace knitters. Please see specific required skills below. Instructions are both written and charted. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.
