Pattern Description:

A slouchy beanie hat

"The words 'oversized' and 'slouchy' best describe this cosy beanie hat. A giant horseshoe cable wraps around the head on a

The cardigan shown in the images is Chloe, which is also available as a pattern, and there is also a Cove cardigan and snood using the same horseshoe cable as Cove hat.
