The slouch hat is nice and long, giving you lots of room at the back for a ponytail. And if ponytails are not your style, the slouch looks great without as well.

The black and white makes it look sharp, but any other color combination can be used to match this with any winter outfit.

The beanie has a nice drape, which makes it comfortable to wear. And it works up quick, which makes it a great last-minute gift idea. You can gift it alone or make a fashionable winter set by also making the cowl to match: Winter Drifts Reversible Cowl

How It Is Made

This beanie is started at the brim using the rib stitch, which is simply a single crochet worked into the back loop of the previous row. Once the ribbing is the length that you want it at to go around the head, you simply join that and begin working in rounds.

The textures of the body are created by working both the single crochet and triple crochet stitches into the same stitch. Then you skip a stitch to maintain stitch count.

The body is worked in an even pattern until the last round, at which point a round of decreases is worked, which not only gives a better shape, but it also makes it easier to sew together.

Finally, attach a pom pom if you like, or leave it as is. I left mine without, but it is easy to make your own with leftover yarns. How To Make a Pom Pom.

The Size

The free pattern is given in one size to fit a teen or adult small. When laid flat it measures 9″ across the brim, 10″ across the body and 11″ top to bottom.

But, you can increase this to any size as needed from baby to adult. This Crochet Hat Size Chart by Age can help to take the guesswork out when making adjustments to the size.

The Yarn

The slouchy crochet hat is shown here in a bulky yarn, called Loops and Threads Charisma. I used one skein of each color to make this. But since it’s so easy to adjust to any size, you could work this up in just about any yarn and hook size that you want.

And if you prefer working it in a worsted weight, here is that one worked in a solid color: Winter Drifts Crochet Slouchy Beanie in Worsted Weight
