Slippies by Jessica Owen Day

Conversationalist by The Plucky Knitter
Knit with worsted weight yarn like Lichen and Lace Worsted and 3.75-4mm needles
230 yards (210 m) needed
pattern is one size (adult) but says it is easily adjustable.
The key to making this simple hat a real show stopper is to use really nice yarn. A pretty hand dyed merino like Lichen and Lace Worsted will give you a similar effect to the hats pictured here.
