Bulky Oscar PDF
A bulky version of Oscar the Slouch, the ribbing of this hat is worked flat with short rows in a twisted rib. After the short rows are complete, you will join your ribbing in the round. The body of Bulky Oscar features a lattice cable panel flanked by bands of stockinette and reverse stockinette stitch that help the slouchiness fall perfectly into place. An optional pompom adds to the fun.
