The Quintessential Slouch Hat kit contains the pattern, 1 hank of cotton, and 4 mini-hanks of 'quintessential' fibers. Needles recommended include 16" circulars in US 5 (3.75mm) and US 8 (5mm), along with DPNs in US 8 (5mm.)
The hat is knit in garter stitch and is an easy introduction into changing colors and fibers.
