Corded Spiral Slouch
Tall stitches and an unusual construction give this hat drape to spare with a strongly defined spiral formed by rows of reversible single crochet stitches that come together at the center of the hat. The blend of alpaca, silk, camel, and cashmere gives this hat its wonderful drape.
