Not quite a slouch hat, not quite a newsboy hat; I present to you the Z-Cap! Use it to hold a little hair, wear it slouchy, it's up to you. This hat pattern is very versatile, and suitable for both beginners and intermediate crocheters. I've included both the US and UK stitch versions. The original design makes a lightweight cap. I've found that substituting the aran weight for two strands of dk weight makes it more ideal for colder weather. Go down a hook size if you need to cinch the rim in a bit more. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY 2 DC-TOG Single Crochet - SC Double Crochet - DC GAUGE 6 dc's and 3 rows = 2 inches. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Teen/Adult 21-22 inch circumference. 10 inches from top of hat to rim edge. Adult Medium/Regular 22-23 inch circumference. 10 inches from top of hat to rim edge.
