Free Pattern: Airy Avalon Slouchy Hat

Airy Avalon Slouchy Hat, free #crochet pattern in Cascade Yarns Avalon by Marie Segares/Underground CrafterSince I live in New York City, I tend to think about heavier winterwear for holiday gifts. For the past few years, my sister has been living in the South (first in New Orleans and now in Houston), so I’ve had to think about gifts that might be a little lighter.
