Flat Knit Slouch Hat Knitting Pattern

If you’re new to knitting switching from single point to circular needles can seem daunting. The majority of hat patterns use circular needles so you won’t have to sew a seam. Circular needles can be tricky to wield if you’re a beginner knitter accustomed to straight needles. In my years of creating patterns for this blog, I’ve come across two distinct kinds of knitters: anti-seam sewing and anti-circular needles.

This Marbled Slouch Hat Knitting Pattern is knit flat so it’s perfect for those who like to avoid circular needles.

This hat features a ribbed brim, slouchy shape with a simple textured pattern.
