Note: this is a very lightly slouched hat. It does not droop like a regular slouch.

About the Pattern:
I’ve always wanted to knit up a lightly-slouched hat that had one main cable panel for interest. I came up with this dunne-like cable pattern that intertwines gartered stitches with twisted stockinette stitches. The main body of the hat has a textured garter stitch pattern that resembles sand.
