More about the pattern

This is a very easy pattern to follow and the name of this slouch explains everything. The combination of shell and v stitch makes the body of the hat and give it a great openwork texture. It means this slouch is not only for the winter season, but it also can be worn in all the year long.  And this slouch can be adjusted to any size. I have included instructions to crochet this pattern for adult, teen, and child.

    Shouldn’t the number of band rows for child size 18″ be 60? 50 doesn’t seem to be working out for me

      Ohh, Christine… It’s a typo. Yes! You’re correct. It should be 60 rows, not 50. 🙂 Thanks for letting me know about this. I’ll fix it and update.

    I just showed my shell v shell hat that I made in the CAL Central Crochet Holiday Stashdown by underground crafter that you shared and helped us with. My friend wants to know how much it costs! How much do you charge for this hat? I used a cream colored yarn that I think is medium worsted weight, but not sure because it was given to me without labels.

      Hi Paula, I’m so sorry for late to reply. I was awaaay from the internet for few days to enjoy the ear end with my family. I paid for this yarn about $3 or 4. I can’t remember exactly because I ordered a pack with other weight of yarn. It requires approx: 140 yards not a whole skein and I used some leftover yarns to make a pompom so it would be the same amount of the yard in one skein if you make a pompom for the hat. I would charge $15 not including shipping cost.

        Sorry for delay in reply. I did not get notification that you replied. Thank you. She liked the white so much she ordered a black and a red one. I’m using red heart super saver I got on sale for $3 at Michaels plus a 20% total order coupon. It only takes me almost 2 hours to complete. So I’m going to charge $10 and hope she advertises for me as this is a new business for me. 🤔
