Chains and Ribs Slouch Hat & Cowl

This crochet slouch hat and cowl set is the worsted weight version of the Chains and Ribs Hat and Cowl. This one is easier to adjust in size and can be crocheted for all ages. I love how it turned out, and discovered that it looks great on both sides… so you could wear it inside out if you wanted too.

The crocheted hat has a slight slouch, which makes it great for anyone who wears their hair in a bun. I left it off, but you can always attach a pom pom at the top if you like. You can purchase one, or make one in a matching yarn. Here is a tutorial on How To Make a Pom Pom.

The Size

The hat pattern is given in two sizes, with the small being at 9 by 9 inches when laid flat. The large one is 10 inches across the width when laid flat. The stitch multiple is a multiple of 8 for your starting chains, making it easy to adjust this to any size you need. Here is a handy Crochet Hat Size Chart by Age that you can use as a reference.

The cowl measures 19″ x5.5″. It too can be adjusted to any length and width in a multiple of 8. The instructions are given for a shorter cowl – it wraps twice, but it’s a snug wrap. I love how it fits, but I know there are some who don’t like anything snug around the neck. So please consider how long you need it as you make your starting chains.

The Yarn

I used Red Heart Super Saver to crochet this hat and cowl set. But you can use any worsted weight yarn that gives you the gauge that you need, and/or the stretch that you like in a hat and cowl.

The Stitch Pattern

This set is worked with the half double crochet and chain one spaces. The half doubles are worked either around the front or back post to create the ribbed design.

It’s an intermediate pattern, but easy for those who have mastered the basics of crochet.
