This is a PDF crochet pattern for a wonderfully chunky and uniquely-textured slouch worked from the bottom up. Even though it’s solid, the texture of the cables reminded me of a chain link fence. It’s a fun one to make!
Christmas at Sea renamed this pattern from the original “Crocheted Seaman’s Hat” to “Crochet Seafarer’s Cap” when they redesigned their Website in 2012. The pattern is the third one down on the Scribd page.
