This is my new favorite crocheted hat this season. I love the two tones, which can be crocheted in any colors you like. One tester used a variegated yarn for the picot rounds and the other used a new color for each picot round. Both were awesome and it allows for lots of bright and cheerful colors to be packed into a single hat. Also it would make for a nice stashbuster, especially if changing colors for each picot round.

Add a pom-pom for a personal touch. You can buy one or make one from leftover yarn to match the hat perfectly.

Regardless of what you choose, this slouchy hat will make for the perfect gift idea, especially when you match it up with this crochet cowl pattern.

How It’s Made

The crochet hat pattern is started at the ribbing and worked up to the top. The ribbing is worked in short rows and then joined together so you can begin to work in rounds. Here is a crochet ribbing tutorial to help.

As for the main body it is worked with the single crochet and a picot in one round, followed by a double crochet and chain one space in the next round. It’s very simple, yet pretty!

The Size

The finished size is 18″ in circumference by 10.5″ tall. But in a simply multiple of two along the ribbing rows, you can crochet this to any size that you want.

The Yarn

I used Red Heart Super yarn for this hat. But any similar yarn will work. If making this for a baby you can choose a baby yarn to make it nice and soft for them.
