Suzette Beanie

I've been working on this pattern for a week. A friend gave me a very wonderful yarn. One that I haven't had ever before. It's Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Oxford Grey. I have never had this kind of yarn, just because it's so hard to find a Lion Brand yarns here in the Philippines. I love it very much so I was thinking of making a slouchy hat out of this yarn, and even posted on Instagram a WIP.

But I was so sad because I only have a skein of that yarn and wasn't able to finish the project. It can't even finished a beanie, much more a slouchy hat. So I had to frog it and think of a new project for that yarn ( SPOILER! I found one and would post soon about it. So excited for that one)

And so I look for another yarn, long enough and soft enough for a slouchy hat. Good thing this locally bought yarn was good enough to be a replacement for this project. 

The stitch is called "Suzette Stitch" and it is so easy to do but an eye catcher. It is just a combination of single crochet and double crochet. 
And as you can see it's still not as slouchy as I want it to be. But then I am already happy with the result. If you have a better yarn, that can make it more slouchy go ahead and use it. My goal for this was to use only one (1) skein of yarn , but have I had more skein of the wool-ease I could have make that exemption, but no worries all things come together for good. So here is the Pattern of this hat.


Adult Size

Stitches used:
  • ch - chain
  • sc - single crochet
  • dc - double crochet
  • sl st - slip stitch


Round 1 . Chain 80, join to the first chain. Chain 1, sc in first stitch, sc all around. Join with a sl st in first sc, chain 1.

Round 2-10. Sc all the way around. Join with a sl st in first sc, chain 1.

Round 11-24. Sc in first stitch, dc in same stitch. * skip next stitch, sc, dc in next*. Repeat * all the way around. Join with a sl st in first sc, chain 1.  Leave a long tail to gather up the crown or stitch it up to close it. The pompom is optional. 

Now if you want a more slouchy hat you can continue working up to your desired length. 

That is all there is for this pattern. So easy and yet so pretty.

So that's it. I hope you all learn something and enjoy this post. If you have any questions, comments or suggestion just leave a message on the comment box and I will gladly answer them. Thank you and God bless!
