In this free slouchy hat knitting pattern, you’ll learn the pine tree stitch. The video tutorial shows you how to knit it flat, but I took it a step further, which I think makes it a little easier, and knit it in the round.

  • End:
  • Without binding-off, cut the yarn leaving a 10” {25cm} tail, pull it through the remaining STS, push through the top hole to the inside and then weave in the ends.
  •  
  • Block:
  • To block this hat I use a saucer. Like a teacup and saucer. ;) I put it inside the hat, so the bottom “swirl” is in the center of the saucer and the saucer is bulging outward, spritz it with some water, pat dry with a clean towel and let it dry overnight.
