Disclaimer: The yarn used for this project was given to me by King Cole Yarn as part of their North American Brand Ambassador Program. To learn more about the yarns available from King Cole Yarn, please visit their website. If you’d like to try their yarn you can find your local King Cole Yarn Stockist here. Find all my free crochet patterns designed using King Cole Yarn here.

My Lacy V Stitch Slouch Hat Pattern is available in sizes Toddler, small child (3-5 years), child (6-10 years), teen/adult (small), adult (medium) and adult (large).


The Yarn I used

For my Lacy V Stitch Slouch Hat I used 2.4 oz (67 g) and 176 yds (161 m) of King Cole, Finesse Cotton Silk DK Yarn [3].

This exquisite natural fibre yarn is a blend of cotton (77%) and silk (23%). Each ball includes 50 g (1.76 oz) and 131 yds (120 m).

This finished hat is lightweight and very comfortable to wear. The lightness and feel of the cotton/silk blend make it perfect for warmer weather. The yarn has a slight twist that makes my simple stitches look intriguing and my finished hat looks like it was expensive to make (but it wasn’t!).

King Cole yarn is available from your local yarn shop, or online at the links in my post below.

Finesse Cotton Silk is hand washable (30C) and it is available in 23 different shades. To see the shades available in Finesse Cotton Silkvisit this link.

Sl st Joins for Main Hat Rounds

To join at the end of the hat body rounds, slip stitch into the third chain (from the initial ch 4) and then into the ch1sp. This will help center the starting v st for the next round and it will look closer to the other v sts that you are crocheting.

Helpful Tutorials

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple of 2
  • The initial ch 1 does not count as a stitch (HAT BAND).
  • The initial ch 4 counts as 1 dc + ch 1. (HAT BODY).
  • To join at the end of the hat body rounds, slip stitch into the third chain (from the initial ch 4) and then into the ch1sp. This will help center the starting v st for the next round and it will look closer to the other v sts that you are crocheting.
  • Beg in Rnd 2, each v stitch is worked in the center of a v stitch (i.e. in the ch1sp). We skip all stitches not mentioned (ie. the v stitch double crochets found on each side of the ch1sp) and the 2 dc of each round.
  • Sl st to join does not count as a stitch (HAT BODY).
  • To add approximately 1 extra inch of hat height, work the REPEAT ROUND two extra times.

Finishing Instructions

  • Finish off leaving a 8 to 10 inch tail of yarn.
  • Close the top of the hat by weaving your yarn end through the front loop of each stitch in the last round (the dc and the chains) and cinching the top closed. See this tutorial for help. 
  • If there is still a gap at the top, don’t worry! Turn the hat inside out and close the gap by making a stitch from the left side of the gap to the right side (pull to tighten) then from the top of the gap to the bottom (pull to tighten).The fabric is lightweight so this doesn’t create a big bump at the top (like it would with bulky or worsted weight yarns).
  • Weave in ends.
