This Easy 2-Hour Slouch Hat Crochet Pattern is a beautiful yet simple pattern. All winter long, you’ll be wearing this hat with every outfit. It will keep you warm, while looking stylish, with it’s ribbed detail adding interest and texture. In just two hours, you can crochet this hat while relaxing at home, watching tv, or just enjoying some quiet time for yourself.

 

This slouchie beanie crochet pattern uses single crochet, double crochet, magic circle/ring, and front-post double crochet (fpdc). If you don’t know how to do a fpdc, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! In addition to a brief demonstration in the pattern video, I’ve also included an additional video, demonstrating how to make both the front-post and back-post double crochet.

 

NOTE: One note, however! I made an oopsie in the video and stated (repeatedly, yikes) that at the end of each row, you should do two chain stitches to act as your first double crochet…it should be three. Sorry… Luckily, for this pattern, you won’t see the mistake even if you make two stitches instead of three.

 

Materials

  • Approx a half skein of #4/worsted weight yarn
  • K-10.5/6.5-mm hook and J-10/6-mm hook
  • Stitch marker (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle

 

Finished size

Using #4/worsted weight yarn and a J-hook, this pattern will make one adult-size hat.

 

Additional Notes

  • All instructions, abbreviations, and materials in this pattern are given in US terminology.
  • Numbers in parentheses at the end of each row show many stitches should be in that particular row.

 

Crochet Abbreviations for this Pattern

  • st – stitch
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • ch – chain
  • ch st – chain stitch
  • dc – double crochet
  • fpdc – front-post double crochet
  • inc – increase
  • dec – decrease

NOTE:

I made an oopsie (or two) in the video above and unfortunately YouTube won’t allow you to fix it (or add a text box explaining the correct number) without removing the entire video and uploading a new one. Here are the corrections:

1) I stated (repeatedly, yikes) that at the end of each row, you should do two chain stitches to act as your first double crochet…it should be three. Sorry… Luckily, for this pattern, you won’t see the mistake even if you make two stitches instead of three.

2) Starting at row #15, I miscounted, it should actually be 52! I got out my yarn and hook and re-did it again and it’s 52. If it’s a little loose on you, though, you could always decrease three stitches together a few times in Row #15 (or reduce the number of sc to one, between a few of the decreases). Thanks careful crocheters for catching me on this one! 🙂

    Thank you for this pattern. I am a little confused when I get to Row 6-14, it says: Row 6-14: Ch 3 (to act as first dc), *dc in next ten st, fpdc in next st. Continue instructions after * until you’ve reached the end of this row. Connect with sl st at end of row. Repeat for a total of 6 rows.

    But 6-14 is 9 rows. So should there be 9 rows or 6 rows?

    Thank you.

      Nevermind! I watched the video and it helped by saying to do 9 rows. Sorry!

        Thank you so much Sally for pointing that out! I can’t believe I never caught that. I’ve updated the text in the pattern to reflect that it should be 9 rows. Thanks again and hope you’re enjoying your slouch hat! 🙂
