Enchanted Infinity Slouch Hat Pattern

Many years ago I designed my Enchanted Infinity Slouch Hat and it was one of my favorite hats to wear. I actually wore it until it was completely stretched out of shape and falling apart (this took about 5 years of fall/winter/spring wear in Southern Ontario climates).

I’ve been watching for a yarn to show up that looked like it would work similarly to the one I used for the original pattern (seeing as the original one was discontinued) and have not had much luck finding one I liked.

Last month KnitPal sent me some yarn to try and I’m excited to share that one of the yarns really caught my eye for this pattern makeover.

I’m pretty excited about this – the yarn is called Ombre Encore and the color I used is Hurricane Blue.

I’ve rewritten the original pattern using this updated yarn and it is now available for free below! The flower pattern is also included in the post, as well as, the original pattern in case someone has some of the original yarn still in the yarn stash.

Finishing Instructions

The Flower Pattern

R1: Ch 40, sk the first ch, (dc3tog CL, ch 3, sl st to the same ch, sk the next ch) 5 times, (tr3tog CL, ch 4, sl st to the same ch, sk the next ch) five times, (dtr3tog CL, ch 5, sl st to the same ch, sk the next ch) 10 times. You will have a total of 20 petals. Finish off leaving a tail for seaming.

Roll your flower up to form a rose. I begin rolling at the start of the row (dc3tog CL petals), since they are the smallest in height. The largest petals will then be on the outside when you roll it this way.

Now sew the flower together through the base of the foundation chain row in multiple directions to hold the flower together in its final shape. Attach it to your hat by sewing it in place. Fluff out the petals.

Roll your flower up to form a rose. I begin rolling at the start of the row (dc3tog petals) since they are the smallest in height. The largest petals (dtr3tog) will be on the outside if you roll it this way. To see an example of how I stitch my roll-up flowers please see this post: Free Flower Embellishment. Stitch through the initial ch 40 row, in multiple directions to hold the flower together and then attach it to your hat. Fluff out the petals as desired (they will go in either direction).

  1. Great, thanks! And you didn’t have trouble using the 6mm hook on it?

  2. I should say yarn… I’m a cross stitcher so I think in terms of thread!

  3. Hi, I saw the gauge you gave for the 9mm hook part, can you give me a better idea of what weight thread I should be looking for? I assume something that also fits easily into the 6mm hook… but not quite sure how thick the thread should be – I’m new at crochet!

    Thanks,
    Lara

  4. Thank you. I made a c2c baby blanket for my granddaughter last year and may have a full ball of the yarn left… have to dig through my yarn.. if not an excuse to buy more yarn ?

  5. Hi Zaroga, Yes, Just one ball of the yarn 🙂 I only had a tiny bit left when I finished the flower. All the best, Rhondda
