This is a PDF crochet pattern for a wonderfully chunky and uniquely-textured slouch hat worked from the bottom up. Even though it’s solid, the texture of the cables reminded me of a chain link fence. It’s a fun one to make!
This hat is what I think of when I see the words "stacked shell stitch, but I don't know if that's what it is. I have a hard time seeing the shells in these patterns. Gives it its own, nice look, for sure.
