"This textured crochet slouch hat is based off the same stitches I used to make the “Bulky Afghan Crochet Pattern” I had a lady comment on a post of mine asking me “to do a hat design again because it's been awhile and she always liked my designs.” So to honor all my long time followers who are a fan of my slouch hats I designed this one for you. This design is a great Unisex hat! Great for men and women! SIZING This size hat can fit a 12 year or older person. If you do need a smaller rim or larger rim you can easily change the size by removing or adding stitches in multiples of 2. The length of this hat is about 11 inches or 28 cms."
The Oakley slouch in the pictures below was made by Rebecca Langford. It's a classic crochet hat with a pom-pom. It's easy and highly adaptable, so you can have one that suits you amazingly in short order. If you want to gift it, it will be a fantastic handmade present!

The Hadley slouch is a little more hippy or Boheme. It's chainlink-like stitching is greatly complemented by alternating the bands of color. This has the further advantage of letting you use up shorter lengths of yarn. Maria Bittner did an amazing job with this pattern, don't you think?
