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.
