Looking fashionable on bad hair days just got easier! #slouchhat This super slouch hat is the perfect pattern for crocheters of all levels: it only takes a few hours to make, the pattern is free, and comes in both child and adult sizes for customizable fits. You’ll just need some Worsted Weight yarn to get started. So why wait? Get to crocheting today and look fantastic tomorrow!
The Super Slouch Hat was originally designed by Danyel Pink.
I know there are only a million other slouch hat patterns out there, but I haven’t found one that works well for me, so I whipped up my own. It’s quick & easy… and is great for BHDs (Bad Hair Days).
I have included instructions for both Child & Adult sizes, and included some notes to customize the fit of your Super Slouch.
Danyel Pink has closed her crochet website (Danyel Pink Designs) and retired from the world of crochet. Oombawka Design purchased the full rights to this pattern, which means now I can share it with you.
I’m happy to be able to include the Super Slouch Hat with my other free patterns on the Oombawka Design Crochet blog.
If you, or someone you know, is retiring and closing their crochet blog, please feel free to reach out to arrange for your patterns to be included at Oombawka Design too.
