Here is a slouch pattern to go with my Chains and Ribs Chunky Cowl pattern. The set goes well together and is perfect for the winter weather.
The hat is crocheted in a chunky yarn and available in one size only, which is an adult small. The hat is big on my small head, and so it might stretch to fit a small to medium in a woman size.
Please take measurements, check your gauge and decide from there as to what you need to do in regards to size.
The pattern is not the easiest to adjust in size for two reasons:
- it’s crocheted in a chunky yarn
- you need a multiple of 8 stitches
So it’s a bit more tricky, but not impossible because you can always experiment with different yarns and hook sizes. Hopefully next week I’ll have one in a worsted yarn to give you more flexibility.
