Ok lovelies, so many of you have have been requesting this for years (yes, years!) I finally got around to working it up, and I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out! The Fiona Button Slouch is an easy peasy slouch hat specially designed to match the Fiona Button Scarf (get the free scarf pattern here!)
It even has a decorative button that gives the same style as the scarf. Using just one skein of super bulky yarn, you can make one in no time flat!
