    This is the shape of the classic slouchy crochet beanie. But it uses the fun textured puff stitch to make it a bit more interesting. The ribbed band, created using front loop only crochet, gives it a nice fit and adds to the stylish design. This crochet hat is worked in the round from brim to top and is designed in two sizes for adults.
