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.
The perfect fall accessory in one evening? 🍁 Challenge accepted! Dive into an evening of creativity with our slouch hat pattern that combines post stitches and X-stitches for a unique design. Fun, stylish, and oh so cozy!

Do not panic, the hat is super wide at this point but it will shape up in the next few rounds!

Rnd 5: Ch 2 (counts as 1 hdc), 1 hdc in the bl of each st around. Sl st to the first st to join. [43 hdc]
Rnd 6: Ch 2 (counts as 1 dc), 1 dc in the bl of the last st of Rnd 5 (tip: this is the hdc before the sl st to join). *Sk the next st, work 1 dc in the next st, work 1 dc in the sk st**. Work from * to ** around to the last st. Sk the last st, sl st to the first st to join. [21 crossed double crochet]

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.
