One Hour Slouch Hat

Keeping the heat in this winter while looking fashionably casual at the same time couldn’t be easier than pulling on this bulky slouch hat.  It covers the ears, is flattering to wear, and best of all takes only an hour to knit in Sirdar’s KIKO, one of our top picks this season for the splashy array of printed colours and the softly spun texture of the yarn.  Look for all eight shades at your local yarn store.

To countdown the month before Christmas we are featuring five FREE patterns in total that take no more than an evening or two to knit and yield this season’s trendiest selection of head to toe accessories all set to tuck under the tree.  Each week one new design will be in the spotlight right here featuring some of our most favorite yarns.

WEEK TWO- In a one horse open sleigh o’ the fields we go………..staying oh-so cosy and warm with a stylish slouch hat in a festive shade.
