The Lora Edith hat is a slouchy hat with just enough texture. The hat is named after my great aunt who is full of strength and has a good sense of humor. When I was very young, she would try on hats with my grandmother, mother, and aunt and they would speak in funny voices and laugh for ages. The Lora Edith hat reflects her strength of character through the constantly changing texture and expresses her fun spirit with how sassy this little slouch hat looks when worn! Knit in the round with a bit of a looser gauge, the hat is a super-fast knit and comes in a child's size and two adult sizes.
