Picture Chutes by Aimee Alexander

Picture Chutes is knit in the round from the brim up. Like many of my hats, it features a knit-in-hat for warmth and to help retain shape over time. It is a slouchy hat, but can be modified to a beanie by following the notes provided.  Picture Chutes is conveniently written in 4 sizes and all measurements are given in US and metric.
