Ridged Slouch Hat – An Elegant and Charming and Hat
Designed by the talented team over at Lion Brand, this slouchy hat is knitted in one piece, in-the-round. It is a great project for confident beginners to work on.
The hat is available in one size; however, it is stretchy enough to fit a range of sizes. A complete hat will measure about 18.5 inches in circumference. That is m 47 cm if you prefer using metric units.
To make the hat, you will need Lion Brand’s Heartland Yarn. It is a beautiful and very squishy medium-weight yarn made of 100% acrylic. The yarn is simply perfect for stylish accessories and garments.
You will also need a size US 6 circular and double-pointed knitting needle. That is a 4.25 mm needle if you are using the metric system.
Moreover, you will be using the kfb knitting increase and k2tog decrease technique when making this project. The kfb or knit front and back is a visible increase that creates a horizontal bar on the knit side of your project.
If you want to learn how to do the kfb, we have an illustrated tutorial for it here: Learn How to Make a KFB or Bar Increase.
The k2tog or knitting two stitches together is a basic right slanting decrease that is often paired with ssk and yarnover. You can find our illustrated tutorial for it here: Basic Right Slanting Decrease (K2tog).
