Free Slouchy Hat Crochet Pattern
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 a finer texture due to the thinner yarn.
It’s also 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 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.
