Free pattern - Ribbed Slouchy Hat

So, here's another FREE pattern. This time, for a ribbed slouchy hat. Who isn't absolutely crazy about slouchy hats or berets? And January just screams "I need my head warm"! :)

So, for this particular pattern, you'll need to know the following stitches:
ABBREVIATIONS
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
FPdc - front post double crochet
sc2tog – 2 single crochets together (decrease)
dc2tog – 2 double crochets together (decrease)
sl st – slip stitch
(If you need any help with the FPdc, please check out Crochet Geek's tutorial on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56eTH2LxBWw (Teresa, you rock!)).
