This casual slouchy hat uses simple knit-purl textures to make a dynamic zigzag and stripe pattern. Slouchiness is created by knitting the main part of the hat a little longer than normal, and is easily adjusted to suit your taste. The back of the hat is encouraged to gather and drape by the strategic use of purl ridges throughout the design.
