"The Bucktown slouch is great for gifting, but you’ll want to make one for yourself too! It features an open stitch pattern that allows for some airflow, and adds even more drape to the casual style. Make it extra cozy for winter wear, with luxuriously soft alpaca or wool. I recommend a softer / fuzzier alpaca or wool yarn for this pattern. The sample was made with Plymouth Juli, which is now discontinued. The pattern includes a few recommendations for substitutions."
