I love slouch hats. I think they’re flattering onnearly everyone no matter what type of hairstyle or face shape they have. Plus they’re also just plain fun to knit. However, I do have one complaint with this style of hat. Sometimes it seems there is just too much bunched up material sagging at the back of your head. From the front this appearance is quite cute, but from the back it might not be. And then there's the fussing to make sure the hat slouches properly to get just the right look. Scalliwag is a compromise and takes care of these concerns. Using short rows, the hat is shaped so that the front portion is longer than the back. This causes the look of a slouched hat without all the added material. (An added bonus is that the hat works up nice and quick since you’re cutting out a large section of fabric.) Also, there's no messing about trying to get correct slouch since the top will always lean toward the back (the portion with less rows). The decreases were worked in a boxlike manner, which gives the shape of the hat a bandanna-like appearance when viewed from the front. Although Scalliwag was intended to slouch toward the back you may find it fun to flip it to the side to switch things up a bit.
