This cosy hat is worked in luxuriously soft and warm Whitfell Chunky, 100% baby Alpaca. A striking cable runs from the brim to the crown, creating a bold feature that is easy to knit and perfect for knitters newer to cables. One size and two fit options, beanie and slouchy, make this easy knit the perfect chunky hat for a quick knit, or a last minute gift. Knit the beanie option and you will have enough yarn left from your single skein for an optional pompom.
