Using the same cable stitch pattern as the Royal Cowl, this comfy hat has just the right amount of slouch. Or, it’s a perfect toque with the brim rolled up. Choose a bright colour, like this gorgeous Gaia Green, and this hat will bring a smile to your face on a cold day. This pattern is worked in the round from the bottom up.

The Royal Slouch uses one skein (approximately 200 yards) of worsted weight yarn. Pattern includes stitch guide, list of abbreviations, and the stitch pattern is both written and charted.

One size: Fits approximate head circumference of 21 - 24 inches (53 - 61 cm). Finished circumference of body of hat at widest point = 18 inches (46 cm). Finished circumference of brim = 15 inches (38 cm). Finished length of hat (without pom pom) = 9 inches (23 cm).

Skills required: knitting in the round, increasing, decreasing, cabling with a cable needle, making a pom-pom (optional). Stitches used: k, p, C4F, C4B, M1L, k2tog.
