MOCKERY! I don’t know why, but I always want to shout this dramatically. Must be the nerd in me lol. This hat is full of mock cables that are subtle and easy to do.
I know I personally love a hat with a bit of slouch to it, so I can tuck my long hair into it without any issues of it slipping up above my ears. Does anyone else relate?
This beginner-friendly hat pattern works up quite quickly, is available in three sizes, and includes directions for both a beanie and a slouchy hat. You’ll also find two variations – one with and without eyelets!

Mockery – This hat pattern is worked bottom-up, starting with the brim, followed by the body, and then decreasing for the crown. This hat pattern has multiple sizes as well as both beanie and slouchy versions – so you’ll be able to find the perfect fit regardless of your personal style.
Worked in the round, Mockery contains written directions and charts. When the crown becomes too small to continue, you’ll switch to the magic loop method or DPNs (depending on your knitting preference).
