I was keen to try my hand on puff stitch and it was so easy to crochet more than I think.
I love the texture that came out very pretty and nice. So this zig zag puff stitch slouchy beanie was born. I make this beanie in mix of two colour and basically this slouchy hat made up from a rectangle.

For this Zig Zag Puff Stitch project you can use any size of crochet hook and yarn.

Next make the band.

Repeat round 2 until you get the length matching the rectangle!
Attach the band and the rectangle together by sewing using yarn needle.
Then sew the short side of the rectangular piece and close the top of the hat by weaving the tail and pulling tight to close.
