This V Stitch Slouch Hat came about because of a request to do a tutorial for one of Lion Brand’s patterns called “Falling Water shawl” which I did and you can find the links to that tutorial below.

 

While doing the tutorial I feel in love with the stitch pattern that was used at the end of the shawl! So much so that I created a Hat pattern to go along with their shawl and named it the Falling Water Slouch Hat.

 

If you want the shawl tutorials for the Falling Water shawl as well, then you can find the playlist here that contains both right and left handed versions. Falling Water Shawl Playlist
