The Design

"Cozy zig-zags."

This free pattern is a fun way to ease into stranded colorwork. Encircling your head like a woolly crown, the Simple Colorwork Slouch Hats use two colors for a repeated zig-zag motif with playful clusters at the points and dotted in-between. A snug ribbed brim, slightly slouchy shape, squishy structure, and simple finishing all combine to make these hats super cozy and quick to knit!

We chose Wool and the Gang’s Alpachino Merino for the Simple Colorwork Slouch Hats. A chunky-weight blend of sustainably sourced alpaca and merino, this yarn has a gently, poofy twist and creates a plush and cozy fabric. And with a color palette that features both playful brights and calm neutrals, there are so many fun combo options! Plus, you just need two skeins of Alpachino Merino for two colorwork hats, alternating the main color and contrasting color.
