About the Pattern

This slouchy pocket hat features a simple-yet-striking color pattern and a pocket sized to fit cards, cash, or a key. The simple 2-stitch color pattern is easy to memorize.

You don’t need any special skills to add the pocket, just sewing on a button. I like to pick my buttons after I knit because I don’t like the pressure of making my button holes an exact size.

Two of my favorite DK yarns that are soft against the skin and would work well in this pattern are Swish DK 100% fine superwash merino and Capra DK 85% fine merino wool, 15% cashmere.
