An easy, casual hat, just right for those days when all you want to do is throw on a headwarmer and head down to the beach for some much-needed me time. A simple, uncomplicated design, suitable for those new to knitting as the only skills you need are cast on, knit, purl, and knit 2 together. Why not knit one in every colour - great as gifts! Get one on and get out there!

Please note that different yarns may take different amounts, so make sure you have enough.
Remember that if you add in extra rows for more of a slouch, then you will need more yarn, and this may mean that you need an extra ball for the adult sizes.
Other chunky/bulky yarns should work well, but check your tension/gauge.

Average review
A great slouchy pattern. I did this for my husband without the button and he loved it. The customer service was outstanding as I needed an adjustment to the pattern for a larger size. This was no trouble to the seller at all. Highly recommended!!!! :)
