The Design

"Squishy, plushy and nonchalant."

Pull the wool over their eyesliterally and figurativelywith the surprisingly simple Extra Slouch Hat. Designed by our friend Jane Richmond for Blue Sky Fibers, this hat will be one of the easiest, most relaxing knits to ever fly off your needles. It has a nonchalant slouch and rhythmic stitch which looks much more intricate than what it really isa knit 1, purl 1 round followed by an all knit round. This creates a gentle, textured rib that’s equally handsome on both women and menin fact, Laura knit one for her son!

The hat is squishy, plushy, and wonderfully warm in Blue Sky Fibers Extra. This yarn goes the extra mile in everything from its bountiful yardage and additional gramsunusual in an Aran-weight skeinto its hearty, springy twist. Lush but light, lofty and soft, this alpaca-merino blend is fantastically versatile and so much fun to have on your needlesalmost as much fun as it is to wear.
