Gratification Hat

4.50 USD  

This slouchy hat is naturally asymmetrical, giving it a unique shape and style. The easy slipped stitch pattern gradually decreases to a peak at the top of the hat while the stockinette section grows. This creates the perfect amount of slouch.

The Gratification Hat is the fifth and final pattern in the Winter Comfort Collection. This is a collection of 5 cold weather accessory patterns in neutral colours and natural fibres.
