Need a quick, cute pattern? Something a little slouchy and comfortable? The Heather Hat may just fit the bill. This delightfully easy and fun hat is simple to work. The slight lace pattern lends a bit of flair to an otherwise plain hat. Meant to be an extra slouchy hat, the bouncy merino may need a bit of blocking to open the lace and allow the hat to truly bloom and slouch. If a slouchy hat is not your style, you could also knit the hat a bit shorter for a closer fit.
This pattern is meant for adventurous novice knitters to experienced knitters and all those in-between.
