This ‘Reef Beanie’ uses a combination of slipped stitches and cable knitting to create a design that is very stretchy even with the thick yarn. The super bulky yarn makes for a very cozy and warm hat and a very quick knit as well.

This is a fitted style hat. However, I included an option in the pattern if you would like to add more height/slouchiness to the hat. Just note that the yardage will increase.
