water bomb slouchy hat

a new free pattern for you!  seamless, cotton, quick, and you get to learn a new technique -- the tubular cast-on!  or maybe you already know the tubular cast-on, in which case i'll bet you can finish this simple hat in a few hours.  i completed it quite quickly, and i am a slow knitter.

the tubular cast-on gives you a nice edge, and the perfect place to hide some elastic thread.  threading some elastic through the cast-on edge makes the cotton ribbing snap back into place and remain snug on your head.

the lace is both charted and written out, and there are links to the lace-charting website and the youtube video from which i learned the cast-on.

enjoy!  happy knitting!
