Oscar the Slouch
Grouch no more! This hat is designed with slouch that stays on your head.
Oscar the Slouch has ribbing that is worked flat with short rows to ease the amount of fabric at the back of the head. After the short rows are complete, you will join your ribbing in the round.
The body of the hat features a lattice cable panel flanked by bands of stockinette & reverse stockinette stitch that help the slouchiness fall perfectly into place. An optional pompom adds to the fun, and the color of your favorite muppet might be a must.
The pattern includes both a worsted weight version as well as a version in bulky weight yarn (in separate pdfs)
$5.00 for both worsted and bulky patterns
