Inspired by the wonderland at the edge of our nearby coastal range, the Neahkahnie Slouch is the perfect hat to bring on a quick getaway to the Oregon Coast. A simple construction makes this slouchy beanie as easy to crochet as it is to wear. Beginning at the crown and spiraling down towards the brim, the subtle tree motif offers a little texture to this piece. Whether you hit the trails or craft oceanside, the Neahkahnie Slouch is the coziest homage to our natural history and breathtaking landscape.
