This pattern is an interesting style that can be worn by a woman or a man. The sideways construction gives this hat an appealing visual appeal.
The hat should take 4-6 hours to complete. Depending on how many rows you complete it can fit a teen to an adult female/male.

  1. Hi... Thank you for posting this beautiful pattern. I'm a fairly new crocheter... I'm having a problem with the term "(make sure to do dc in the hump of the ch) - by "hump" do you mean "in the back loop of the chain" ?
    Thanks in advance.
