Slouch Hat Free Pattern @OombawkaDesign

Size: Preemie

To fit 12″ head circumference. 5″ in height before seaming

Note: I am not sure if a slouch hat is practical for a Preemie – so my recommendation is to make this hat one less row in height for the Main Hat Pattern to reach a regular beanie hat size, or to follow the pattern and fold the ribbed band up. The instructions in the pattern are written for the slouch hat. To make this a regular size beanie finish the Main Hat Pattern after Round 5.

Ribbed Band
The band is worked in rows.

Leave an 8″ tail at the beginning – you will use this later to whip-stitch the band together.

The finished length of the ribbed band is 9″ unstretched and the band is approximately 2.25″ wide.

Chain 9

R1: Beginning in the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 blsc in each st across, ch 1, turn (8)
R2: 1 blsc in each st across, ch 1, turn, (8)
R3-R28: repeat R2 (8)

Do not finish off – continue to the Main Hat Pattern below.

Main Hat Pattern:

This section is worked in rounds. Slip stitches do not count as stitches in the totals at the end of the rounds. Do not work into the slip stitches – you may wish to use a stitch marker to remember which stitch is a slip stitch.

R1: Ch 1 and turn to work along the row ends of the ribbed band; work 1 sc in each row end for a total of 28 sts, sl st to the 1st st to join (28)

Using the 8″ tail of yarn (from the beginning of the ribbed band section), neatly whip-stitch your ribbed band together. Need help with the whip-stitch? View this tutorial for assistance: How to Join with a Whip Stitch Seam

R2: 1 sc in each st around, sl st to the 1st st to join (28)

Note: the initial ch 3, 1 dc at the beginning of each Round below counts as a double crochet stitch set in the totals at the end of the rounds).

R3: (ch 3, 1 dc) in the 1st st, skip 1 st, [work 2 dc (we will call this a dc st set) in the next st, sk the next st] around; sl st to join in the space between the initial ch 3 and the 1st dc of the round (14 dc stitch sets)

Size: Newborn

To fit 13.5″ head circumference. 5.5″ in height before seaming (approximately 4.5″ in height after seaming)

Finishing
Turn your hat inside out and flatten it on a hard surface so the last stitch is in the centre.

Slouch Hat closing TUT @oombawkadesign

 

Step 1: Thread the yarn end on a yarn needle and whip stitch the center stitch on both sides of the hat together.

Step 2: Now take the hat and flatten it so the side edges are now lined up down the centre, on top of the stitch you just made. Sew through the middle stitch on both the top and bottom pieces of fabric.

Step 3: Now you should have 4 open ‘petals’ around a centre. Whip stitch the center stitch in each of the petals to the center. (Please note: some individuals find this is enough ‘closure’ for them for a slouch hat so if you like this look stop here!)

Step 4: This will create 8 ‘petals’ and your hat is now sufficiently shaped and closed.

  1. Hi Tina, If you use the PrintFriendly button it will let you print, save a PDF or email yourself a copy. You can also use CTRL “P” or CMD “P” to print but it will give you all the icky sidebar stuff too. I also have copy/paste enabled so you can copy and paste it into a word document or notepad – I hope one of these options works for you 🙂 All the best, Rhondda

  2. Hi Rhondda,

    I want to make your Slouchy hat but it will not allow me to print the pattern. Could you please advise? Thank you so much.

  3. Hi Leslie, It would depend on the size hat you were making. For the adult sizes you will need almost 2 balls. For the Toddler and smaller sizes 1 ball should be sufficient. Hope this helps, Rhondda

  4. I missed how much yarn is required to make this hat or how many hats one could make from one skein…is that info noted for any of the sizes?

  5. Thank you Geri 🙂 and no worries about the spelling – it really is a different way to spell it unless you are from Wales, UK. My Nana was born in Glamorgan and there is a Valley there called the Rhondda Valley – which I was named after 😉 I’m very happy you like the pattern and found it easy to follow. Thank you also for letting me know about the larger size – the largest I tested myself was Adult Medium (which I wear)! I’m glad you made it work 🙂 All the best, Rhondda

  6. Rhondda–I finished the 2nd Joyful Hat (Adult Large) and decided the “wings” were too holey so added I another center join in each wing to make those holes smaller and less drafty for the head of the wearer. Looks terrific, just like the 1st Joyful Hat I made two days ago in the Child’s 3-5yo.

  7. Rhondda I spelled your name wrong on your Facebook page (which you’re probably used to)…my wrong ~”
    I’m working on my 2nd Joyful and Bright Slouch Hat…super easy and trendy. Love the finishing touch–very unique. Thank you!

  8. Hi, I love your patterns and have made a few with great joy. I am having a little trouble understanding the pattern. In particular could you explain a bit more “sl st to join in the space of the initial chain 3”. I know this is very important to the pattern so your help is much appreciated
    Thanks

  9. Hi Tami 🙂 I’m so very happy this will work! Message me if you have questions ok? All the best, Rhondda

  10. Hi Rhondda!

    This joining technique is exactly what I needed for that hat I emailed you about earlier this week! I’m so glad that I asked your opinion before I just went off on my own with it! Thank you!

    And I absolutely LOVE ‘this’ particular hat pattern so it looks as if my dear daughter will be receiving yet another hat, scarf and glove set next week! (I think that she is going to have the most winter sets out of everyone on campus this year! 🙂 )

    Thank you so much (again) for all of the wonderful patterns that you so un-selfishly share with all of us! I know that I for one would be lost without your site. Even though I’ve been crocheting for over 40 years, I can still just get lost in here with all of the wonderful patterns, techniques, round-ups, new stitches (I just love looking at the new stitches!!!), etc… and I have to be careful and actually set a time-limit for myself or I would browse around for hours and hours!! lol (that is so true!)

    Thanks for the advice! It was very much appreciated! Have a great week! And Bless You for all you do!!!! Warmly ~Tami

  11. Thank you so much Ann 🙂 Please let me know if you ever do see a mistake – I try to be careful but human error can happen and I’d rather know so I can fix it 🙂 Have a lovely week, Rhondda

  12. I love your patters and the fact that your so generously giving them away like that! They are well written and easy to follow. Thank you so much.
    I have tried many other free patterns and many times they are filled with missing intructions or mistakes! This is more frustrating than anything else. But I have never had this happen to me with your free patterns 🙂 nice!
    Thank so much!

  13. I loved this hat the moment I saw it. I had to text my sister and share your hat design pattern with her. The color is fantabulous! And it looks really nice in baby/kis and adult sizes. I will most likely attempt this design with Lion Brand Homespun.

  14. Very welcome Sal 🙂 As it is worked in Rounds/Spirals it would be considered an Intermediate Level Pattern based on Yarn Standards. It is not very difficult though. If you know how to work in rounds you should be able to accomplish it 🙂 Rhondda (and you can always ask me questions by messaging me using the contact form!)

  15. Thank you for the awesome pattern. I always battle to find slouchy beanies. I am quite a newbie with crochet. Would you consider this as easy or intermediate?

  16. This is absolutely beautiful! Bookmarked for when the appropriate yarn ends up on my hands.

  17. Love this pattern! I used this pattern with Berocca brio (riot) yarn, and it is the most awesome hat I have ever owned 🙂 i also made this same hat for my husband using lionbrand homespun, and he loves it. Thanks!

  18. Hi 🙂 The band that fits around the head is sized to fit the circumference of the head – just like a regular hat. If you wear your hats further back on your head (behind the ears) you may wish to move a size smaller as the hat is meant to fit over the forehead/ears – not around the hairline.

    Hope this helps 🙂 and thank you!
    Rhondda

  19. wear exactly should you measure for this hat? around where a normal hat fits or where that slouchy band goes around? confused on this.

    thanks! beautiful color/hat

  20. I love your patterns, but is there a way to print this one? I don’t usually crochet with my laptop. Thanks

  21. Thank you so much. I’ve been hunting for a pattern to make with the LB Unique yarn. I cannot wait to make one 🙂

  22. Thank you Barbara! For being so understanding about me listing the wrong colour!! Hopefully they will exchange it for you when you visit the store! Rhondda

  23. Gosh Lori! I’m very sorry!! Thank you for being so understanding about me listing the wrong colour! Rhondda

  24. Thank you. I also ordered the grapevine yarn. Wrong color but I like it. Thats ok, I’ll just order more. One can never have too much yarn. Theres no such thing.

  25. No problem, just wanted to make sure I wasn’t loosing my mind (again) lol……thank you so much, I will go get the yarn tomorrow yay!

  26. Hi Gayle, You will need 2 balls of the Unique yarn to make the adult size hats 🙂 Thank you! Rhondda

  27. Hi Barbara, I’m terribly sorry! I copied the yarn information from my fingerless mitts into this post. I’ve corrected the colour now. My Fingerless Mitts and Earwarmer use the Grapevine. My slouch hat in this post uses Oceania. I’m terribly sorry!!! Rhondda

  28. Hi Pam, I haven’t added it to Ravelry yet – I will try to do this this week! Thank you for the reminder! Rhondda

  29. Hi there, and happy new year! I was so thrilled to see this new hat addition to the Joyful and Bright series… Question: I can’t find it on ravelry?? Is it listed somewhere that I’m not seeing?
    Thanks so much!

    Pam

  30. Hello Rhondda,
    I love following a lot of your patterns and making them 🙂 but I want to make this hat and I went to Joann’s today and bought the yarn you have listed above to use (unique in grapevine) but for some reason it does not match the one on your hat….mine has pinks in it, so I went to Lion Brand web site and looked up the color grapevine to make sure someone didn’t switch the labels and it shows pink in their’s also. So I am wondering if maybe it was a different name you may have used.

  31. I also would like to know how much yarn is needed for an adult size. Love the pattern. Thank you

  32. I couldn’t find the link for the fingerless mitts. am I not seeing this correct?

  33. This is so beautiful! I want to make it, probably in adult small or medium. About how much yarn will I need? Thanks again!

  34. Hi Karen 🙂 I drew a little picture to try to help and added it to the post – I hope it clears up the confusion and I added a photo of the top of the hat to the end of the post for you too. Let me know if you have any questions and I’d be happy to try to help! Happy New Year! Rhondda

  35. This is super cute! And just what I was looking for. Do you have any pictures of the top of the hat and how you finish it? I’m having a hard time picturing it. Thanks.

  36. Thank you Sharon!! The yarn is lovely to work with too and they have a lot of great combinations in the Unique line 🙂 Hugs! Rhondda

  37. I really love this and the color yarn it is sooo pretty. Thank you so much for all your beautiful patterns.

    Hugs 🙂
    Sharon
