Measure from the opposite end as your buttonhole, and find about 17-18 inches (or you can measure your own head for a perfect fit). Fold over your side and sew your end in place using your tapestry needle. When you fold your flap over, your buttonhole looks like it overlaps your hat band. Make sure when you start the body of your hat, your are only using the loops in the hat bands, not on the overlap piece.

Working from the outside, join your yarn with a sl st about 10 rows to the right of your seam. It doesn’t need to be an exact place, you just want your seam in the back of the hat. Since your sts are now sideways, it’s a bit awkward, but work a row of loose sc all around the band to give you a foundation. (About 57 sts)

 1.Ch 1. Sc in same st. Dc in same st. Sk one st.( Sc and Dc in same st. Sk 1 st) repeat all around the hat. Depending on how you worked your foundation sc sts, your count may be a bit off than my count. Just finish with a hdc in the last st, even if you didn’t skip the st previous to it. Join with sl st. 

2. – 12. Repeat row 1. (Make sure you are working your sc and dc in the dc from the previous row.) {If you want your hat more "slouchy" than the pictures show, repeat this step a few more times}

 13. Ch 1. (Sc and Dc in same st. Sk 2 sts. ) Repeat all around the hat. Join with sl st.

 14. Ch 1. (Sc and Dc in same st. Sk 1 st.) Repeat all around the hat. Join with sl st.

 15. – 16. Ch 1. (Sc and Dc in same st. Sk 2 sts) Repeat all around the hat. Join with sl st.

 17. Ch 1. Hdc in same st. Hdc in each st around. You should have about a 3-inch hole. Close it off by pinching it in half. Take your loop off your hook and pull it through the other side, yarn over and sl st. Pinch it again, take your loop off your hook, and going through 4 layers, catching your loop in the middle of your layers, yarn over and sl st through all the layers and loops. Tie off and secure your end.

Attach a large button and weave in your ends.
