The Adiri Slouchy Hat is the third pattern in the Adiri series. The hat has a lot of character and can look elegant or funky depending on your mood. It rarely leaves my head these days. It’s a fun, quick knit, and perfect for holiday gifting. In a masculine color it would work for a man as well as a woman.

The pattern is suitable for advanced beginner cable and lace knitters. Please see specific required skills below. Instructions are both written and charted.
