Chunky meets feminine with a boho touch in this hat! Lots of texture shows through with an interesting all-over lace stitch that meanders vertically from the Garter st border.
One skein of vibrantly colored Montera and big needles make for a quick knit. This hat is knit from the bottom up in the round for the seamlessness that we all love.
An easy-to-wear hat that delivers a solid punch of style to any outfit. You can even choose from a less slouchy version or the slouchier version shown here as both are included in the pattern.

It took me just 3 days, working part time to knit this hat. It was fun and easy.

I made this slouchy hat for my 13 year old daughter for Christmas. It knit up quickly and easily and she loves it. The pattern was well written.

A easy hat to knit. It worked up fast and has been a pleasure to wear.
I have a small head and think I will make it again with less stitches to start or knit elastic in.

I used this pattern to make several hats as Christmas gifts for my sisters and niece. Everyone loved them and they were very easy to make. I could complete an entire hat in two evenings of watching my favorite shows (3 - 4 hours total)

When I saw the photo of the Slouchy Beret I was reminded that I had some baby alpaca of a similar color. Instead of knitting the hat I used the lace pattern for a cowl. It was easy and pretty fast to knit. Best of all, it is beautiful and warm, in spite of all the holes.

This is a well written pattern and a great hat. I made the slouchier version. It looks more complicated than it is. If you want a great slouchier hat fast, this is the one!

I knitted up this hat using Lion brand Wool Spun (#5 bulky). Worked up great. I made the slouchy version and 127 yards was enough although I wasn't sure it was going to be. I would suggest placing a marker between every 10 pattern stitches. It helps to keep track of things and makes it much easier to spot and correct an error. Chart was easy to follow. Great pattern. Thank you!

I used only circular needle and at the end I worked with magic loop. My niece was too happy with her hat!

This slouch hat knitted up fast and easy. The pattern was easy to follow and well written. The lacy texture really pops with a solid color yarn and my daughter loves it!

This hat pattern knits up quickly. It's perfect for those times you want a fast result. It's an easy pattern to follow, and the hat looks beautiful. Make this hat and you'll look like an expert knitter without much effort on your part.
