Day 7 of the 12 days of DIY gifts to make presents another chunky slouchy hat to whip up for those who need something fast. This hat is so fast that it is the perfect last minute gift.
The hat is very simple, using basic crochet stitches and using a Q hook and three strands of yarn. Not only is fast but it is very warm. The pom-pom gives it whimsical touch.
This hat is easily adjustable, and the pattern as is should fit from 20.5 inches to 23 inches. Increase the starting chain for bigger size.
The hat project time is about 1 hour, and 1.5 hours at the most.
Please do not post this pattern on your website or take it as your own. I ask that you instead link to my page, which will help with internet karma. Please note you can use this pattern for personal use and sell what you make. I only ask that you credit me as the pattern creator and link to this article. Thank you.
