I love slouch hats. They add a laid back vibe to any outfit. This version is inspired by Kate Spade. I posted the knitting pattern for the matching pocket scarf at the beginning of the week. I love the graphic black and white! If you’re a newbie knitter, don’t let the stripes intimidate you- you just carry the yarn you’re not working with up the back. Happy Knitting!
