Vines and Twigs Slouch Hat
Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

The cables and post stitches running up this slouchy hat are reminiscent of vines and twigs – which is where it gets it’s name. This is a great project for someone just learning cables, or for the more advanced crocheter. It can be made in nearly any size and goes well with the Vines and Twigs scarf I posted a couple weeks ago. So grab your hook and show off your skills!
