This super simple slouch hat is perfect for beginners looking to play with some basic shaping and textures, but it’s also fun for the intermediate crocheter who wants to whip up something quick and cute.
How to make a crochet hat the right size - I have been using this same method lately. Its hard to follow a pattern exactly when you are constantly using different yarn. For an adult female, the hat should fit if you crochet a circle until it measures 5 1/4 FLAT (stop your increases at that point). For a mans hat, stop you increases when your circle measures about 6 1/4 FLAT.
