Because I obviously have lots of spare time, picked up some test knitting last week. I’m on a couple of list serv for people who will test knit patterns for designers. I misplaced my favorite slouchy winter hat and knew I needed to knit one up quick. I checked my dwindling stash and figured a festive red hat would do. I cannot link to the pattern as it hasn’t been published and I am working with the designer on some modifications. As you can see it has a distinct diamond or criss-cross pattern. I liked the pattern and how the hat looked. To Slouch or Not to Slouch hat pattern is a ravelry.com download.
