The Airy Vee Slouch crochet pattern is a simple hat pattern that’s great for stash busting, and was inspired by the Draped in Diamonds Vest.
You can have fun with the pattern by making several in different colors and fibers for your personal hat collection, or gifts for family and friends. Animal and plant fiber yarns will add drape to the hat, and warming or cooling characteristics.
Do you have just one skein of a yarn that’s been collecting dust on the shelf? This pattern only requires 2.0 oz of yarn! Yes, only 2.0 oz of yarn due to the combination of tall stitches. You can personalize the hat with fewer or more rows, and extending the ribbing, if you have enough yarn.
