Dustland Hat

This slouchy hat is great for both the guys and the gals on your list, and the variety of stitches will keep you from getting bored.

Find this pattern in West Knits Book Three (available in the store) or purchase it as a single pattern on Ravelry. Knit it using one skein of Shepherd’s Wool Worsted, or for a machine washable option try Berocco Vintage.

From the pattern author:

This textured hat gives the perfect amount of slouch for cozy casual look. The knit-purl patterning beautifully highlights a solid worsted weight yarn. An optional button can be added to tack down the slouchy fabric.
