Cables inside cables, and a slight slouch with options for extra slouch, make this Hat a must have. As with the other Hats in the book, the shaping is worked into the stitch pattern, creating a seamless and perfect finish.

This pattern is available to purchase separately, or as part of the Twisted Woolly Toppers collection.
