This is a very basic, mesh hat pattern! It’s a bit different than my other slouchy hats. This one is actually a skully hat that gets it’s slouchiness from being extra long. I think you’ll love making it! It’s super quick and I designed it to take only one skein of Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick!
Edit (3/9/2017): This pattern has been completely rewritten and there is now a video available to show you how to make this hat! Check it out on YouTube!
