Finishing Note: This is a mini slouch style; it is not fitted,
but not overly slouchy either. This hat can easily be
made slouchier by repeating rows to taste. This
pattern does not include embellishments, however,
here are a few of my free patterns to use, enjoy!

Note: This pattern is worked from the brim of the hat up (a one piece garment), but I have written it
in two sections to avoid confusion in row counting: brim, body. There are two ways to finish this
hat: Square or Mini Slouch. Instructions for both are found on the last page. Photos of certain
aspects of this pattern are shown so that you may successfully replicate the design, however,
please use the pictures for directional purposes and not necessarily for stitch and row counting
enjoy!
