Here is the “winter drifts” beanie in a worsted weight yarn. To be honest, I actually prefer this one over the chunky version because you get more textures due to the thinner yarn.
It’s crocheted in a solid color here, which along with the texture, gives you a super stylish look. And it’s got a nice diagonal, or zig-zagged texture to compliment just about any outfit.
The Stitch Pattern
This crochet slouchy beanie pattern is started at the bottom and worked up to the top.
The ribbing rows at the bottom are worked in the back loops using single crochet stitches. Once you reach a desired circumference you simply sew the two ribbing ends together and begin to work in the rounds.
The first round may be a bit tricky as you’re working into the row ends from the ribbing. After that it is easy breezy and mindless!
The textures are worked with a single crochet and a triple crochet worked together into the same stitch. Then you skip the next stitch to maintain the stitch count.
At the top one round of decreases are worked to make it easier to sew the top closed.
You can add a pom pom if you like, or leave it without. Here is a tutorial on How To Make a Pom Pom.
The pattern is given in one size only, but can be adjusted to any size as needed in a simple multiple of two. Thus, feel free to experiment with any yarn and hook size that you like.
I used Red Heart Super Saver. It’s a medium weight economic yarn. I like it because it washes well and gives me the warmth that I need to survive cold winters.
But, because the hat is so easy to customize in size, any yarn that gives you the stretch that you’re looking for will work.
