Jenn made this cute hat using one of her favorite yarns, Rowan Lima! She chose this pattern because she really liked the cables and style of this slouch hat. The hat pattern comes from the Rowan Winter Warmers book and uses two balls of Lima. The only deviation Jenn made from the pattern is that she started the crown decreases at about 20cm (earlier than the pattern calls for) since she knew Rowan Lima tends to grow and she wanted a slightly less slouchy hat. She definitely recommends checking your gauge since the alpaca in this yarn makes the hat grow a ton. If you are just a little loose, definitely go down a needle size or two.
