I am an avid sock knitter, but there comes a time in every sock knitterā€™s life when there are still skeins of sock yarn in the stash but no room for more socks in the drawer. This conundrum led to me to look at my sock yarn in a new way and, with regard to self-striping sock yarn in particular, to consider what other accessories could best take advantage of its special characteristics.

After I released my Slipdash cowl, I received a number of requests for a matching hat. This resulting pattern uses the same easy slip-stitch patterning for an easy relaxed hat. The deep ribbing at the brim allows for an adjustable fit: Wear it as is for maximum slouch, folded halfway for a bit of slouch, or folded up completely for a more traditional beanie-style fit.

To knit this pattern, you need to know how to:
- knit and purl,
- work in the round,
- slip stitches (purlwise), and
- do basic decreases (k2tog).

The slip-stitch pattern in this hat is both written and charted.
