This chunky slouchy beanie crochet pattern features ribbed textures that you’ll enjoy wearing during the cold winter months. It is the perfect match to go with my Chains and Ribs Chunky Cowl pattern. The set goes well together and is perfect for the winter weather.
The slightly slouchy hat works up super quick due to the bulky yarn. That makes this an ideal go-to pattern for making last-minutes gifts. And if you sell at craft fairs, a quick hat like this is a great way to keep your stock-pile high while making sales.
Make this your very own by adding pom poms to the top of the hat. You can purchase a faux fur pom pom, or use the same yarn and make your own. Here is a short photo tutorial on how to make pom poms.
Slouchy Crochet Beanie – The Stitch Pattern
If you can make the half double crochet, along with the back post and front post half double crochet stitches, then you can make this!
The beanie is started at the brim and worked in the round to the top. The brim features a horizontally textured row, whereas for the rest of the pattern, the textured ribs are vertical.
It’s a beautiful stitch pattern that I know will be appreciated in gift baskets for Christmas and winter birthdays.
The Finished Slouch Hat Size
The finished size is a 19″ circumference, which should fit adult small/medium. The hat is big on my small head, and so it should stretch to fit a medium, and maybe even medium/large in a woman size.
Please take measurements, check your gauge and decide from there as to what you need to do in regards to size. Here is a crochet hat size chart to help with the sizing.
The pattern is not the easiest to adjust in size for two reasons:
- it’s crocheted in a chunky yarn
- you need a multiple of 8 stitches
So it’s a bit more tricky, but not impossible because you can always experiment with different yarns and hook sizes. Here is the worsted weight version. That should be a little easier to adjust to the size you need.
The Yarn Used for This Crochet Hat Pattern
You only need one skein of yarn to whip this up. I used Charisma, but Loops and Threads, which is an acrylic, #5 bulky weight yarn. I love this yarn because it’s so soft and adds extra warmth to your finished projects.
