This slouch hat is designed to fit a young child (5-8 years old) but can easily be modified to fit anyone.  For pattern help visit us on facebook

Materials:

Red Heart
5.5mm hook

Abbreviations and Stitches Used:

st- stitch

mc- magic circle/ring

sl st- slip stitch

ch- chain

hdc- half double crochet-
yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull through (three loops on hook), yarn over, pull through all three loops

fpdc- front post  double crochet
yarn over, insert hook behind post of stitch from bottom to top, yarn over pull through (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 1st two loops (two loops now on hook), yarn over and pull through all loops on hook

dec2tog- decrease 2 together (all done with double crochet in this application)
insert hook into space yarn over pull through, insert hook into next space, yarn over and pull through 1st two loops, yarn over and pull through both loops left on hook

Notes:

When using the seamless method (link in pattern) the decreasing rounds may seem strange at first .  Each dec2tog will go into the space where it was done in the previous row.  This place will move as you work your way around the hat.  It should be easy to locate space though.  If you are having a hard time doing decreasing rounds with seamless method you can change to your normal way of crocheting in the round to finish decreasing rounds.  If you have any questions please inbox me on facebook or email me at cre8tion@ymail.com
