I created this slouch hat pattern to match my Almost a Granny triangle scarf. They are both a lighter weight version of a granny stitch that gives them a classic feel with a lacy twist that is great for in between weather or warmer climates.

I love the look of granny stripes in scarves and other wearable items but find them a bit too hot for where I live. So I came up with the Almost a Granny stitch pattern which has the same look but with less bulk and when combined with a cotton yarn you get a cosy looking item that you can actually wear in a warm climate or in spring/autumn!
This hat is created in rounds from the bottom up allowing you to easily adjust for a perfect fit and your preferred amount of slouch.
The pattern uses basic stitches suitable for advanced beginners and has a soothing rhythm even an experienced crocheter will enjoy.

This hat is flexible for sizing with multiples included in the pattern to size according to your needs.

If you wish to complete the example size it is approximately 50cms (20 inches) in circumference.

You are also able to make this as slouchy as you like.

The pom pom is optional.

Bottom up construction.

Skill level: Easy

Stitches used: foundation hdc, shallow bphdc, sc, V stitch, ch.
