    Although this crochet hat pattern could be adapted to suit women, the pork pie hat is designed for men. Similar to the fedora, the pork pie hat differs slightly in the shape and size of the crown and brim. Therefore, it's important to follow these instructions carefully to get the hat that you want. Although the crochet stitches are simple, the work is all in the shaping. This one is sized from newborn through adult for all of the males in your life.
