HOOKED FOR LIFE
Slouchy Leaf Hat PDF
This pattern is a downloadable PDF file.
Sometimes a stitch pattern will just tell you what it wants to be. This one, with alternating columns of leaves and garter stitch, really wanted to be a slouchy hat! I love the way the decreases for the crown fit neatly into the established pattern.
