River Rock Slouch




Here is a hat I created after looking at a blanket design I fell in love with. I changed my design a bit but I really like how it came out. It is a nice slouch and sure to be a staple in your own wardrobe. While I made it so that you can use with Caron Cakes yarn; however, just follow the gauge to use your favorite yarn.

Some additional notes: I am a loose crocheter, so please make sure to check your gauge or go up a hook size if you crochet tight. Also, this hat can be increased/decreased by using a number divisible by 3.

  2. I think round 13 is an error because it would repeat round 2 which 2 DCs in every stitch around, thus it'd be far greater than 66 dc/sc at the end.
