This is a simple and fast slouchy hat to make, suitable for both men and women. There is only one size because it is done in a twisted rib which is very, very stretchy. It takes three different sizes of circular needles to create the shaping, and the yarn is self-striping.
Instead of increasing stitches, we switch needles to larger and larger sizes, keeping the integrity of the ribbing while working up the hat. Then we use a sudden and dramatic decrease for the crown to add shaping to the slouch.

I started knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilting and embroidery even before I started school. I don't even remember being taught to knit and crochet because I was so young, but my teachers were my mother and grandmother.
