Ruth inspires me as “Hat Ninja”, and I'm so happy to see how her life and career have gone in such good directions since I used to have the pleasure of knitting with her at Angel Knits, so I'm happy to offer a link to one of works that ties in with yarns that I dye.

This Hat pattern was originally written for Wensleydale Longwool, which is one of my favourite base yarns to work with.

Sloochie is knitted top down, and includes a “slouchy pixie” and a “slouchy beret” version.

The body is knitted with a slight bias to add interest to the shape, and there are 3 different options for the cabled brim – the perfect mix and match pattern!
