Oscar the Slouch PDF
The ribbing of Oscar the Slouch is worked flat with short rows, and features a faux cable that is easy to work. 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 and reverse stockinette stitch that help the slouchiness fall perfectly into place. An optional pompom adds to the fun.
