Are you on Ravelry.com? It is the best place to be for both crocheters and knitters, and a great place for designers to get inspiration for their own ideas.
One such hat caught my eye. Unfortunately I could not get the pattern and after stopping and starting over twice, decided to give up on it. However, I loved the look and style of the hat and I had to create something similar.
This pattern is easy, using basic stitches, and can be made with the brim or not. And it is something that can be done quickly. The picture of the hat shows the different ways to wear the hat with either 1 button or two buttons. It gives the same hat two different looks. It is slouchy but not super slouchy.
A disclaimer first:
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.
