To slouch or not to slouch, I think that was the question. With this pattern, you decide how much slouch you want your hat to have. If you say, “No way, José!” then go ahead and choose the Slouch-less option. If it’s “Like totally slouchy, to the max!” then check out the Super Slouchy option. For the rest of you who think that a little goes a long way, the Slightly Slouchy option is probably best for you.

Small (Medium, Large) 17 (19, 21 1/2)” circumference at the brim to fit head size of 18—20 (20-22, 22—24)” in circumference. Samples are shown in medium with (-2)” ease.

The Slouch-less option gives you a lacey hat with a close fit from crown to brim.
The Slightly Slouchy option offers a comfortable hat with a longer, slightly looser fit in the crown and body, tapering to fit your head size at the brim.
The Super Slouchy option allows you to create a hat that is roomy in the crown and body, but still sized to fit you at the brim.

Pattern includes a chart and options for additional customization.
