Helpful Tutorials

Notes:

  • Leave a long yarn tail at the beginning of your project to allow you to whipstitch the edges of the hat band together when you are finished.
  • This slouch hat pattern is crocheted in continuous rounds. You do not slip stitch to join or chain additional stitches at the beginning of each round. You may want to use a stitch marker to mark your place. I place the stitch marker in the very first stitch of each round beginning in Rnd 2 and move it up each round until the hat is complete.
  • If you’d like a longer slouch, repeat the ‘repeat rounds’ additional times. Every 2 rounds adds approximately 1 inch in finished hat height.
