This hat may have added slouch, but it’s no slouch in the style department! It has interesting crochet cables made with chain loops and a pompom to top them off—so fun!

Gauge/Tension:     GAUGE: 6 sc = 2” (5 cm); 6 rows = 2” (5 cm) with larger hook. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain gauge.

Directions are for size Small. Changes for sizes Medium and Large are in parentheses.

Hat measures 18 (20, 22)” [45.5 (51, 56) cm] circumference at brim.

Notes
1. Hat is made in joined rounds with right side facing at all times.
2. Eight vertical cables are made around the hat, each from 8 chain-12 loops. Hold each chain-12 loop in front of subsequent rounds and do not work into each loop until instructed.
3. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Cut old color.

Special Technique
Adjustable-ring method = Wrap yarn into a ring, ensuring that the tail falls behind the working yarn. Grip ring and tail firmly between middle finger and thumb. Insert hook through center of ring, yarn over (with working yarn) and draw up a loop. Work stitches of first round in ring, working over both strands (the tail and the ring). After the first round of stitches is worked, pull gently, but firmly, on tail to tighten ring.
Join with sc = Place a slip knot on hook, insert hook in indicated stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through both loops on hook.
