My Summer Slouch Hat Pattern is available in sizes toddler to adult large. This crocheted hat is made from the bottom-up, in one piece, with DK Weight Yarn [3]. This warm weather hat is perfect for holding your hair in place during the warmer weather.

To make my Summer Slouch Hat you will need Light Weight Yarn [3] and both a 4 mm (G) crochet hook (for the hat band/brim) and a 5 mm (H) crochet hook for the hat body.

My Summer 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).

If you’d like a longer slouch for your hat it is very easy to do! Just work the repeat section on extra two times to increase the hat height by one inch. To make it a shorter slouch hat, decrease the repeat section by 2 rounds for each inch of height you’d like to remove.

The Yarn I used

For my Summer Slouch Hat I used 1.93 oz (55 g) and 139 yds (127 m) of DK Weight Yarn.

King Cole Bamboo Cotton DK is amazingly soft and easy to work with. This finished hat is lightweight and very comfortable to wear. There is a smoothness and a soft lustre to this yarn that gives it a luxurious look and feel.

This is a slouch hat. To make your hat more slouchy, increase the repeat rounds until you have a desired hat height.

  • Small Child Hat (3-5 years) height 8 inches X 18 inches circumference
  • Child Hat (6-10 years) height 9 inches X 19 inches circumference
