A warm slouchy hat, worked from the brim to the crown in rounds, this eliminates sewing seams and gives a nice finish, it’s an easy stitch to memorize and can be made in a day, I have used buttons to decorate the brim, but this is optional.
Make in the appropriate colors to go with any outfit, there is lots of slouch to put your hair into on bad hair days. it can be worn by both male or female.
