The hat with slouch that stays on your head!

Oscar the Slouch uses short rows in the ribbing to ease the amount of fabric at the back of the head. After the short rows are complete, you will join your ribbing in the round.

The body of the hat features a lattice cable panel flanked by bands of stockinette & reverse stockinette stitch that help the slouchiness fall perfectly into place. An optional pompom adds to the fun, and the color of your favorite muppet might be a must.
