Rustic Love Slouch Crochet Pattern
I had planned to make myself a new hat, but about halfway through, I couldn't decide if this should be MY hat or for my daughter. She is 7 now, and we can share hats! It seems that most children's hat sizes fit me and most small adult hat sizes fit her. She is growing up so fast, it's not even fair!!! After taking the photo, she told me she wants to keep that hat for wearing to school… maybe next winter I will be able to take over and start wearing it myself. 😉

My goal was to use only one skein of Super Saver Stripes – Latte Stripes, but to make this hat have the perfect slight slouch to it and a large full pom pom, I had to bust out a second skein. I didn't even use half of the second, leaving you enough yarn to make fingerless gloves or an ear warmer set if you're looking to stay extra cozy!

With your starting end, weave back and forth between each stitch from round 1. Close the hole as much as possible. You will still have an opening about the size of a dime.
Make your Secure Pom Pom. Attach it over the opening. Secure it well with your yarn needle and it will cover the hole.
Weave in all ends.
