Vegabond Slouch Hat – Reversible


This unisex hat is so cozy you may not want to take it off. If you feel like wandering, make sure this hat wanders off with you. It is loose-fitting, slouchy, oh-so-warm and even REVERSIBLE!

The sweet and simple detail around the brim is like a touch of icing on a cupcake. This hat is knit in stockinette stitch making this a great hat for showing off a luxurious yarn or a favourite colour. It also makes for perfect travel knitting.

This hat is knit from the bottom to the crown (twice) with a light fingering weight yarn. This hat has three sizes and no visible seam.
