Flat Knit Slouchy Hat Free Knitting Pattern- a relaxed, textured design knit with the prettiest jewel-toned yarn.
If you're a beginner knitter, there are a few terms in this pattern that you might be unfamiliar with. One is an increase technique and the other is used to decrease a stitch.
KFB- means knit in the front and back of a stitch. It's a simple way to increase a stitch.
SKP- means slip, knit, and pass over. Slip the stitch onto the right needle, knit in the next stitch, and move it to the right needle. Then, slip the slipped stitch over the knit one.
