Simple and Sleek Slouch Hat - Free Crochet Pattern
I'm so excited to jumpstart 2017 with this blog and an amazing simple, gorgeous, beginner pattern! I know there are probably several that are similar to this but since I winged this from a photo I saw of a knitted hat in a magazine, I wanted to share it with you guys. Now, I am no professional blogger and I have very little pattern writing experience but I am confident that this is simple enough that I can't screw it up too badly.. at least, I hope!
That being said, this hasn't been tested and if you find any errors, please contact me directly. I'll be happy to update it promptly. Let's jump right in with the materials you will need:
Hook: J 6.00mm hook
Yarn: any worsted weight. I used I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby
Craft Fur if you'd like to make a faux fur pom pom
HDC- Half Double Crochet
BLO- Back Loop Only
-This pattern is not worked in rounds. It is worked in rows until your rectangle matches the height listed for the size.
-This pattern is written for Toddler (Child, Teen, Adult)
Make a Chain of 35 (40, 45, 50)
Row 1: HDC in the 2nd CH from the hook and each stitch across, CH 1 and turn.
Row 2: HDC in the BLO of every stitch, CH 1 and turn.
Repeat row 2 until it measures 16 (17, 17.5, 18) inches. This is easily adjusted by adding or removing rows.
Once you get your desired length, fold the piece so that you can attach the working side with the chain side.
Slip Stitch the sides together.. or use any joining method you prefer! Finish off and leave a long tail.
Weave the tail in and out of the "top" stitches and pull tight to close.
Pompom optional if you'd like to see a written tutorial for how I made this faux fur pompom please let me know!!
lets keep in touch! I'd love to see photos of the finished project!
