Knitting pattern for Andrea hat, a pretty and simple hat which works up quickly in all knit stitches. Two strands of Alpaca 2 and one strand of Silk Mohair make for cosy warmth and a lovely, soft structure. A particular technique renders the subtle pattern. Extra length at the top creates the intended slouch. The hat can be worked in many colors to different effect, and you can make good use of leftover scraps in this project. Also, it is reversible, displaying two different versions of the structure inside and out.
