Everglade slouchy lacy hat - knitting pattern
A real classic, Everglade is as beautiful as the area it was named for. I designed this Hat with versatility in mind: fold back the brim for extra warmth and a fitted look or leave the brim long for a slouchy Hat.
Everglade is worked in the round with a deep ribbed brim and a swirling pattern of interlocking leaves. Instructions are both charted and written out.
