Just like any other happy accident, you start out with a hunch, knit a bunch, and end up, a lot of the time, with something that is not what you imagined; rather, it's a bit "off," and you let it simmer there, in the potential loser pile for awhile, while you decide if you should rip it back a little bit and try again, or if you should live with it, or if you should just chuck it altogether.
But this cap, since it's knit from the crown down, would be so easy to rip back and "fix." So that is what I did, and I'm thrilled.
Designed so you can try on as you go for the perfect amount of "poof," "slouch," or "bagginess," The Hunch is sized for Youth through Adult Large. It's a quick knit, too!
