Basic Slouchy

Basic slouchy hat pattern.
It should fit a small to medium adult head, it's very stretchy.

I used a sport weight yarn for one, and a worsted weight yarn for another. It really depends on how you want the final product to look. Using the sport weight yarn made the hat have a more lacy look, whereas using the worsted weight yarn gave the hat a more solid appearance.
If you like a longer slouchy, increase dc rows between row 5 and 8 to however long you like it.

Materials:
Yarn - a medium weight is recommended. I have not tested this pattern with bulky yarn.
I hook
K hook
Tapestry needle
