Slouchy Beanie Pattern

So I decided to post a pattern for a crochet slouchy beanie. I didn't come up with the pattern though I did write it so that those of you who CAN read a crochet pattern will be able to do this. I want to give TOTAL credit for this beanie to Youtube User - TraceyBeauty for posting the video of how to make this cute and easy beanie.

To watch the video of how Tracey does it:  Slouchy Beanie Video Tutorial

I will finish making the beanie tonight and will update this post with the finished product. But here you go for the pattern:
