The pattern is easy, yet has interesting construction, and makes a great social knitting project. I love the pom poms.
The slouchy hat can be worn as a cowl, too. Just untie the cord and wear it around your neck. The hat can be worn with the long loop doubled into a warm cowl. (Forgive my model, she has no real neck or shoulders to demo this very well.)
I’ve decided to gift this to my dear friend, Marta. I think she could find some good use for this since she lives Canada.
