Do you know what the great thing about making your own stuff is?

It’s randomly glancing at the lost and found table at bible study, noticing an adorable crochet slouchy hat, and realizing, without a doubt, it’s yours.

Whelp, that explains why I couldn’t find it.

How fun is it to have or give something made from your own hands and a ball of string? Hats are excellent quick gifts to make. (Don’t forget to make one for yourself too!)

This hat does have a lot of stretch, so you can use the ear warmer size chart as a guide but you may want to use the smaller measurements in your chosen range if you are using the same yarn.

The Coco Series

The idea for this hat came from working on the Coco series. Sometimes I get stuck on a stitch or a stitch combo and I just can’t move past it until I’ve made all the things with it! You’ll want to check out the other patterns in the Coco Series as they have the same easy stitches:

Infinity Scarf
Toddler Headband
Throw

The open v-stitches with half double crochets give this hat its unique look. Since there are more open stitches, it won’t be a super warm winter hat or stand up to strong wind but it’s perfect for cooler weather like late fall and early spring.
