The genesis of this hat pattern is pretty straightforward: I had yarn leftover from the Crossed Furrows Cowl. Except that it wasn’t just one hat that I designed. A two-colour version also sprang into being. Then a tester wondered about turning it into a slouchy hat and suddenly two hats became four!
The colour work is simple: you use only one colour per round and let slipped stitches do the work for you.

Both written and charted instructions are included. There are 7 pages in the pattern, but only two need to be printed per version.
