Child's Slouchy Hat With Brim {Free Crochet Pattern}

These little slouchy hats are fun and cute. I think the brim makes them special.
They look great in a variety of colors and color combinations. The slouchy hats are extra fun when they sport a complimenting color for the brim.
You can further customize your slouchy hat by adding a cute crochet flower or applique.

This hat is perfect for an intermediate crocheter. If you are a beginner, I think you could pull it off without any problems, if you have done a couple of hats already, and you are familiar with the stitches in the special instructions, below. Hey, give it a shot! That's how we advance, right?
