The soft waves of seafoam stitch are perfect for showing off colour-changing or variegated yarns. Worked here in worsted-weight yarn, they make for a comfortably drapey sideways-knit slouch, extending naturally from the simple garter-stitch brim. The pattern includes both a comfort fit beanie and extra slouchy version.

Hat Description

Marina is a sideways knit Hat that comes in two versions of slouchy, standard and extra-long. Its slouch is created by its lace pattern, which is a playful take on the ‘Seafoam Stitch’. It features offset and alternating small sections of dropped stitches against a garter stitch background.
