Pattern: Josey

I have a really fun pattern today. Josey is a quick knit, made from bulky-weight alpaca, and while winter is technically over, I know the cold is still sticking around most places.

Josey features a picot cast-on edge that transitions into 2x1 ribbing, and the rest of the hat is worked in one-row horizontal stripes with four vertical stripes running up one side. The vertical stripes are worked with slipped stitches, so you're only ever working with one color at a time.

The pattern includes written instructions for a traditional fitted beanie and a slouchy hat (pictured), with complete instructions on how to do the picot cast-on. Enjoy!
