November Twilight Crochet Slouch Hat Pattern
"Crochet a soft, warm, winter slouch hat that's rustic, but still feminine with this easy pattern! Frost and snow are in the air, and this slouch hat would make a great Christmas gift because of how simple it is to crochet! Textured stitches create interest--silvery shadows of trees and mountains--and keep the project fun, while a fur pom-pom adds that extra special touch (instructions for making your own faux fur pom-pom are linked at the bottom of the pattern so you can make one just like it)!"
NotesSince I can't stand anything tight around my head the band is very loose and stretchy. If you have a smaller head or prefer a tighter fit for your hat you will want to omit a few rows from the band. This is very easy to do just as long as you maintain the same stitch count number the pattern calls for in the first round, worked along the edge of the band rows. Pattern body is worked in multiples of 4.
