My Daughter took me on a little small business yarn shop scavenge hunt. Whilst we were out she bought me a few hanks of Baby Alpaca/Merino blend hanks. I wanted to make something special with them but wasn’t sure what.. Til a couple weeks ago. We both recently went super short with our hair and just after we did … Good ole Mr. Winter decided to chill us off. We started saying how we now need hats, not only for the cold but for those days when you hair wont listen 😦 Not like we can put it up in a pony lol.
The Semi-Slouch hat has two “brim” options… A fold-able brim and a Button flap brim. Both options are included in this pattern.

1 Hank of Cascade Eco-Duo yarn ( or comparable.. see below)
Stitch Marker, Scissors & Tapestry Needle
