About the pattern

This slouch is easy and lacy with shell and chains like other two patterns. I used two colors to add stripes to the slouch body because I like the way it turned out. You can use one color instead of making stripes with two colors. Or add multiple colors to get the rainbow look.

  • Hat Circumference = 19-20”
