The Squishy hat is a textured beanie with a little slouch, designed as a companion piece to the Squishy cowl.
Just like the cowl, this is a speedy knit in one skein of bulky yarn – perfect for a gift. The stitch pattern is suitable for advanced beginners as well as experienced knitters.
Textured columns in the hat body flow upwards into an interesting crown design. The wrong side of the hat is attractive, so it’s reversible. The bobble on the crown adds a whimsical touch – and you can remove it if you like!
