A shallow but slouchy hat pattern with Latvian Braids and Cables providing visual interest. The pattern has both charts and full written instructions. A deeper, even slouchier version can be also knitted.
Sample shown is the shallower version, knitted in Malabrigo Silky Merino (150 yds / 137m, 50g, Shade 425 Madre Perla).
To fit sizes: 16, [18, 20, 22, 24]” / 40, [46, 51, 56, 61]cm
Photo tutorial on Latvian braids can be found here.
Testers will be required for both versions – shallow and deep, both written/charted instructions and for each of the sizes.
Like the socks – I’m running the test through Free Pattern Testers on Ravelry. You’ll need to sign in (or join) to Ravelry and join the FPT group, then sign up in the forum thread – which is here.
