Gridwork Slouch

Gridwork Slouch


Highlight a variegated yarn with this stylishly slouchy hat, or try it in a solid color to feature the textured stitch. The slipped garter stitch pattern is reminiscent of the ridges and furrows of a freshly planted field, and decreases neatly at the crown. Make the Gridwork Cowl for a matched set!
