Description

A great, slouchy cap in four sizes (XS/S/M/L) to fit anyone from baby to daddy, with a wide, deeply textured brim to frame the face. Worked completely in the round with an easy to work motif, the knit/purl brim offers a snug fit below to keep the cap in place, but gives way to softly slumping volume above. Coordinates perfectly with the Roger Sock and the Roger That blanket to make a terrific layette for a new family member.
