Petite Shells Slouch Hat – Same DiNamics Crochet
This was one of the only slouch hats that I found that had ear covers, plus pompoms. I fell in love with it immediately and had to share with y’all. It looks really comfortable and warm just from the picture. The designer uses a Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Yarn to make this slouch hat but, any 4 worsted weight yarn would work. You will need 2 colors.
This pattern is for Intermediate crocheters. You will need to know how to do a Front Post Double Crochet, Back Post Double Crochet, Magic Circle, and Petite Shells. You will need your 5.0 mm crochet hook, worsted weight 4 yarn in 2 colors and a large pom-pom maker.
Crochet Plaid Slouchy Hat – Whistle & Ivy
Either your a fan of buffalo plaid or your not. I am one who loves it. I’ve used Whistle & Ivy’s patterns on previous posts. This one is no different. Plaid Slouchy Hat?!?!? Who wouldn’t love to wear one of these in the cold winter months?
To make this hat you will need to know how to do the plaid stitch pattern. She does have a tutorial on how to do this; written and video. Once you learn it, you’ll realize how easy it is to do and you’ll want to try with different colors. If you have left over yarn from any of the other projects of hers I posted then your all set. If not you will need a Medium Weight Yarn. She uses as well as I; Knit Picks Brava in Red, Wine, and Black, plus Dove Heather for the pom-pom.
The brim is crocheted in rows and joined at the end to make a circle. The Hat Body is crocheted in the round joined at the end of each row. No special stitches, which means that any level of crocheter can make this slouch hat no problem. You will need a 5.5 mm (I) crochet hook, and a needle to sew top and weave in the ends.
Oakley Slouch Hat – Little Monkey’s Crochet
Never have I seen a crochet pattern for any type of hat that used a #1 super fine weight yarn. The designer says that it is really easy to work with. I chose to feature this hat because of the way it looks. It is such a fine yarn that you can’t really see the different stitches and from far away you would have no idea it was handmade! She uses Cascade Yarns – Heritage ( I did click the link for the yarn on her pattern; yarn is still available).
You will need 2 colors of the Cascade Yarns – Heritage, your 3.5 mm crochet hook. She does mention stitch markers. I always suggest to use these on any pattern. No special stitches required to make this slouch hat but, you will need to know how to do the magic ring. This hat is worked in the round for the hat of the body. No turning or joining unless otherwise stated.
Crochet Slouchy Beanie – Rescued Paw Designs
This slouch hat is amazing! All shades purple; she uses Lion Brand Yarn Vannas Choice. I’m instantly drawn to this hat because of the stitches that she used. After reading the pattern entirely. There isn’t a single special stitch used; all basic stitches. She uses a 6.0 mm crochet hook.
This hat is worked in rows then folded and sewn together and joined at the top. I think a pom pom at the top with all 3 colors would look just as awesome. She has it listed as a Advanced Beginner skill level.
The next two patterns I’m going to feature, are a dual pattern. Meaning you’ll get 2 patterns from the one site. Men and Child size for one, and the other is women and child size. I was trying to find slouch hats that were made for children and men. This is what I found that I liked. Of course this was not the only male pattern I found!
Daddy and Me Slouch Hat – Winding Road Crochet
When I was reading over this pattern page, I noticed that both hats are made with Caron Cupcake Yarn, which is a light weight 3 yarn. I bet this hat isn’t to heavy or hot. This hat comes in 2 sizes; adult and child. The finished brim for the adult size is 20″ around, and 18.5″ around for the child. She noted that her husband has his stretched out to 23″ and still fits comfortably. Says that her child hasn’t even begun to stretch his. This hat does have special stitching using the HDC (directions are listed). She made the brim of her child’s hat a different color than the husbands; but they still match which makes this pattern to die for.
To make these hats you will need your 4.0 mm crochet hook, 1 skein of a light weight, 3, yarn, and a pom-pom maker (optional). The brim is crocheted in the round then sewn together to make it round. The body of the hat is done in rows, with turning at the end of each row, then sew’n up the side.
Mother’s Beret; Mother and Daughter Hat – Cats-Rockin-Crochet
“Every daughter wants to be just like their Mummy”; this designer just may be right. This hat is the mother’s size to her Baby size Mother and Daughter Hat pattern (linked on page).
To make the adult size she lists 2 different hook sizes; as she has 2 different adult sizes posted. For the adult s/m you will need your 4.0 mm crochet hook and for the adult M/L you will need your 5.0 mm crochet hook. She uses a 8 ply fingering yarn for the adult S/M and a 10 ply for the adult M/L. She does list a special stitch labeled BDC-Back Double Crochet, there is written directions on this stitch. She also has a video demonstration uploaded to the page, I haven’t watched it yet. She also has the pattern for the flower and leaf’s posted as well.
