Slouchy crochet beanie in camel stitch

This one cleverly provides the rib and slouch of the many knitted beanies you see, but using crochet stitches (none difficult). It's from Sheepishly Sharing, and is called Camel Stitch Slouchy.

You work the band (instructions are supplied for lots of sizes from littles to large), join it and then work the rounds of slouch to the size you require.

Camel stitch was a new one to me: but in UK terms it's simply a half treble worked into the back loop (US terms: half double crochet worked into the back loop).

It's another example of how exploiting front and back loops - easy to do -  can create interesting textures in crochet.
