The stylish Slouchy Honey hat features a deep rib brim to keep the hat snug on your head and your ears warm. The honeycomb pattern in the body of the hat looks visually complex, but is simple and enjoyable to knit. A quick decrease at the tiptop gives a gathered look, with the option of adding a playful pom-pom as an accent. This hat is full of fun and perfect for fall and winter weather! Grab two contrasting skeins of your favorite DK or light worsted yarn and sit down for a knit!
