The classic flattering slouchy shape, stripped down to its barest bones and brought to life with beautiful handpainted yarn. The large needles and bulky wool mean that this hat flies off the needles- great for gifts or just for a bit of immediate gratification. Want to jazz it up? Try a pompom, some embroidery, or even a colorwork motif.

And hey, here's the yarn I used to make it, looking quite slouchy itself:
It's a navajo-plied silk/wool blend. I bought it at The Spinning Loft in Howell, MI, but the proprietor had bought it for herself at some wool festival, and was kind enough to sell it to me anyway when I mistook it for merchandise as long as I promised to show her what became of it. Pictures will be sent.
