Chandi’s Hat – Crochet Pattern

Is this hat pattern not ADORABLE?

My friend Tara, of Mamachee Patterns designed it using my Superwash Pearlescent Merino/Silk Worsted Weight Yarn.

It comes in 3 sizes: Child, toddler and adult.

I just love the combination of stitches she used. It has a wee bit of a slouch too!
