This yarn is soft and nice to knit with as far as cotton goes. My one complaint, as is with all cotton, is that it feels so dry.
The back of this hat is so pretty. I made the small, with is more like a puffy beanie. For slouch, make it in the medium or large. This is a fast and interesting knit, with cable work and seed stitch, which I always enjoy. I'm enjoy these quick, simple and satisfying projects.
