Carolyn Slouch Hat Pattern

To make your Carolyn Slouch Hat you will need Medium (Aran) Weight Yarn [4] and 2 crochet hook sizes. You will need a 5 mm (H) hook for the hat band and a 5.5 mm (I) hook for the hat body.

The Carolyn Slouch Hat Pattern is available in 3 sizes; child (6-10 years), teen (small adult) and adult.

Drifter Aran Yarn King Cole - Oombawka

For my hat I used Drifter Aran Yarn.

King Cole Drifter Aran Yarn is available in 12 different colors. It is a blended yarn, made up of Premium Acrylic (79%), Cotton (17%) and Wool (4%). It is easy to work with and the colors are muted and soft.

My Carolyn Hat is crocheted using the color Blue Ridge (Shade: 4182).

Although the fabric of my finished hat is incredibly soft, the stitches retained their definition well.

Finishing Instructions:

Close the top of the hat using my simple closing method. This method is demonstrated here. Seam the hat band closed using a whipstitch seam.

There may be a small hole remaining at the top of the hat for the larger sizes. I used the remaining yarn on my yarn needle to sew four stitches (across the diameter of the hole) to close the small gap that remained after closing the top. If you prefer, you may use a pom pom to hide the small hole.

Weave in any remaining ends securely.
