I learned a few stitches in high school in the 80's. But haven't done much more.

My daughter is in love with slouchy hats. I need to learn to make these because just buying a few at the mall could cost $100.  Shocked  Undecided

Is crocheting in the round what I need to learn? I'm a bit confused, any advise & tips? Cheesy

Crocheting in rounds is what you need to learn.  I have a lot of video tutorials on Youtube if you are interested. I have included my version of the slouch cap.  The pattern can be altered to make it longer by just adding more rounds.

Oh wow. I'll be using that for sure!!  Grin

I need to get a book or find a web site that tells me the stitches. I only remember a few.
