The Roll-o Hat is cozy and warm, with a hipster flair. Directions are given for three sizes: toddler, child, and teen/adult. The teen/adult size has a loose, slouchy fit. The child size has a moderate amount of slouch and the toddler size is more fitted. Tips are given on how to increase the height of the hat to add more slouch. This hat is made using chunky yarn, making it an evening project.

Directions for the scarf worn in some of the images are NOT included with this pattern. That pattern is available in a separate listing: The Button Up Cowl
