Pattern Description:

Slouchy hats are all the rage! Here is my version with big, bold cables.
This hat is a super quick knit on DPNs and circular needles. Big, dramatic cables make for a striking and comfy hat. Chunky ribbed brim can be folded up or left as is for maximum slouchiness.
The top of the hat has decreases that create a cool, decorative flower effect. Your hat will look great as you are coming and going!
