While still being an easy knit, garter sitch with two colors adds a new dimension to the fabric of all four of the pieces included in Beartooth. There are two hats (with 3 sizes each), a cowl (one size) and scarf (two sizes). Slouch #2 is featured in this listing and is pictured with the Beartooth Scarf. A fabulous value -- 4 patterns for $4.95!

Slouch #1 is shorter and fits more like a beret while Slouch #2 is longer and is designed to fit tighter on the head.

Both slouches are knit in the round. The cowl and scarf are knit flat.

The pattern has many pictures as well as color charts. Professionally tech edited by Kristen TenDyke.
