I am a member of a number of crochet groups on Facebook. About a month ago a post was made about a Braided Slouchy Hat and I will confess I immediately fell in love!
The slouch hat is relatively new to me and I will confess that before this year I had never worn, let alone owned one. But this one by Jen Causley caught my attention.
Isn’t it gorgeous?? After purchasing the pattern I immediately set to work. The pattern was well written with photos to help along the way. I love the simplicity of the stitches, but together they form a great textured hat. I tried it in a few different yarns (Shown above is done in a Caron Cake), and will definitely be making a few for the upcoming craft and vendor sale I will be participating in.

Now I am in love with slouch hats! And especially as a girl with extra thick curly-ish at times hair, the slouch is a great alternative to the beanie!
