This pattern has been professionally tech edited and fully test knit.

A slouchy textured hat you won’t want to take off your head until spring.

Featuring options for a tubular cast on or long tail cast on, deep ribbing, and just the right amount of texture to keep the yarn the star of the show. You can choose to work the texture pattern into the crown decreases, or discontinue them a little early.

Fold up the brim for a well fitting beanie, or wear the brim down for a slouchy casual look.
