nevada hat pattern – translation

i came across veruska‘s nevada hat on ravelry and really wanted to translate the pattern because it looks great!  the yarn she’s using is an italian yarn made by lanar that is a wool/acrylic blend and that i’m super jealous of.  oh italy and your beautiful yarns, why must you be so far away?  anyhow, here is the pattern.  veruska, i hope you like it 🙂


from what i can gather all stitches are worked in the back loop of the stitch.

yarn weight: medium to bulky (the lanar website doesn’t specify so i’m going by the look of it)

hook size: 5.5 (I)

TRANSLATION
after having reviewed some handspun Nevada by Lanar, we present here the finished pattern of a slouchy hat with the handspun yarn.  the hat can be completed in an evening, and is a fast and easy pattern, but not boring.
