Lion Brand Vanna's Complement Trivoli Slouch Hat

This easy-to-work up slouch hat is perfect for topping off your look. Share what you stitch using #ACMooreInspired.

Use a gauge of 16 sts (about 4") in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) to knit a hat that measures abot 18-1/2" in finished circumference (will stretch to fit a range of sizes) and about 10" in length. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches, try using a larger size needle.
