You get more than you might expect with this versatile slouchy hat. It’s knit with two yarns held together for a marled effect and an extra-warm fabric. The main color stays the same, and the second color is changed to go from darker to lighter to create a gradient. Wear it with the brim folded up, watch-cap style, or down, as a toque.
