Monophonic’s slouched shape is formed by a series of short rows that keep the crown of the hat falling neatly toward the back. Using this shaping method removes the bulk of extra fabric that would typically rest at the nape of the neck and also lowers the yardage requirement. Following the recommended number of row repeats will give you the look of a moderately slouchy hat. For a hat fit for holding dreads or big hair work more repeats (noted within instructions).
This design offers options for two different looks: reverse and traditional stockinette. The ribbing/lower brim band is the same for either variation. Once you make it past this section you will be instructed to move on to the version of your choice. If you want to work the reverse/purled version, but are having a hard time coming to terms with all that purling, remember that the majority of the hat is actually worked in rows, so you will, in fact, be knitting also.
