Yes, a textural pattern such as this will make for a super squishy and stretchy hat and that is a good thing! I can almost feel the softness through my computer screen. I believe a teen would love this hat as well as a grandmother. I can see this in gold and green for the local football team, uh, you know the Packers. These would be great in your school colors too. It's actually a pretty straightforward pattern to read. Nice hat!

I love this Stretchy Shells Crochet Hat Pattern! It not only looks elegant but with the shell stitch it can be a easy and fast stitch to learn. This will be a new family favorite hat for this winter. I printed this one and will be making a lot of them. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.
