FKD-SSH Semi Sweet (semi-slouch) Hat

This simple little chapeau was originally designed in answer to a request from my boyfriend. His favorite accessory is hats (which I have to say is quite handy) and he accumulated a substantial stash of those I had knitted over the winter. Once the weather began hinting of Spring he turned to lamenting the fact he would not be able to wear his knit hats until the Fall. I, not being one to let my man go with a bare head, dug up some lightweight warm weather yarn and put my mind to designing something appropriate.

In my haste to make the hat I forgot to take note of my boyfriend’s head size and undershot it. He loved the design and deemed it completely guy friendly, but too small for his noggin. My sister graciously stepped in to model the hat. A word to the wise: remember who you’re knitting for!

Semi-Sweet is worked in one piece from the bottom up. The materials list calls for 16 inch circular and double-pointed needles; however, if you prefer, the hat can easily be worked on two circulars or one using the magic loop method. (We love the utter simplicity and pure approach of this slouch hat-- just right for anybody. And this design is included in the Sweet Treats Collection booklet for a discount price!-- Ed.)
