What comes after the golden hour? Sunset — when the sky is ablaze with shades of fiery red!
Sunset Slouch is an intricate lace hat that features the same undulating stitch pattern as seen on the Golden Hour Cowl. This hat is knit with one strand of fingering-weight yarn and the other a fluffy lace-weight silk mohair. Two yarns with similar colors will let the lace pattern shine while a high-contrast pairing creates a dramatic look.
Sunset Slouch is knit in the round using short or long circular needles, starting with a bit of twisted ribbing. The pattern comes in two sizes (small or large) and two styles (beanie or slouchy). The length can be further adjusted within the stitch pattern depending on the degree of slouch you prefer.
The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Instructions for the lace pattern are given both in written and charted format.
