In Springtime, the weather is warmer, but there are still days when you need a hat! Maybe not as snuggly and warm as a cosy beanie, but something light and lacy. This Slouchy Spring Hat should fit the bill nicely.

When you have finished the ribbing, sew in any yarn tails and your slouchy hat is complete!

You may wish to decorate your hat with a flower. I have followed this pattern to make a ruffled rose for my hat. When you finish the rose, leave a long yarn tail - about 20cm - which you can use to sew the rose onto your hat.

I hope you enjoy making your slouchy hat as much as you will enjoy wearing it!
