Simply Slouchy Beanie pattern

I am finally getting a Creative Space in this year. I was curious and recently added a statcounter here, I was surprised to see a ton of people have looked up my previous slouchy pattern so I thought I would make another one with my new style of closing the top. So I hope people let me know when and if they try this one out. It's about as simple as it gets so the beginner can give this a go...If you have any questions please ask away. I'm eager to help


Doesn't my daughter look thrilled ...haha

US terms

HDC....Half double crochet

Lovely hat and gorgeous colour. Thanks for the directions. My crochet abilities don't go much further than a granny square but I fancy having a go at that pattern.

These patterns are so beautiful. Do you allow people to sell the finished products if we give you credit for the pattern?

I am a VERY new beginner (just got my crochet needle this week) and I absolutely am determined to make this hat! However I have some very beginner questions:When you say hdc in each ch, should I assume that it is always every 3rd ch? Also, how do I hdc around?

Amanda Tipton said...

Iamechan, you are hdc'ing in every single chain. Not every third. you are just working around the entire chain joining, then chaining to start a new row and so on. Hope that helps.

How do you seal it at the top? I've been trying so many times but it never looks the same as the picture:<

I have the same question! I cannot for the life of me figure out how to finish off the top. Help?

Brenda Marie said...

If you did the magic loop and worked the hat from the top down in the round, you wouldn't have to deal with the bunching in the top or any seams. Nice hat. :-)

Could you please tell me the final height/width of the hat laying flat? I'm just using a smaller yarn and hook but want to work it up to the same final product :) thanks!
