The Design

"Sublime slouch."

With the subtlest of details and simplest of shapes, the Minimalist Hat is all about the way you feel when you wear it. Its clean lines—no visible edging treatment, no cuff, and nearly no visible shaping—are perfect for sublimely soft, squishy yarns that produce dense, delicious fabric. It just feels good. And it’s a free pattern!

The Minimalist Hat is a pleasure to knit in Rowan Alpaca Soft DK—a wonderfully soft blend of merino and alpaca. Four-plied and DK-weight, Alpaca Soft DK is lightweight, warm, and bouncy. The firm fabric has great stitch definition and a nice drape—just what we like in a slouchy hat.
