I have the same problem with all slouchy hats: they either fall off if I run in them or fall down, Dumb Donald style, over my face. I love Fat Albert’s gang, but it’s not the most practical look for me. I vowed to remedy it with this hat pattern by Irina Bil. It’s my new favorite for Friday night football in our school’s colors. It’s a basic shape made interesting with lots of texture and it looks good inside-out too.
My mods: Using size 4 needles and working in the round, I cast on 88 stitches in Queensland Merino Spray for it to fit my freakishly small head. I followed the instructions otherwise, except for the top, where I used Katy’s notes to keep the stitch pattern going all the way through the decreases.
