A Very Slouchy Hat

I've always wanted to make a very slouchy hat!  I always ended up a little too short, because I wanted a slouchy hat using just one skein of yarn. And it's so hard to do that because usually you will need more than one skein for that. But then with RH skeins you can actually make a two or more Basic beanies, so I choose  RH Super Saver Aran Fleck


Adult Size

Stitches used:
  • ch - chain
  • sc - single crochet
  • sl st - slip stitch
Special Stitch Used:
 Camel Stitch ( using sc)  - SC in the third loop of the previous HDC. Here is a tutorial on how to camel stitch. Just click on the link.


Start with a magic ring.

Round 1. 6 hdc into the ring. Close up the ring tightly, do not join, let's continue to work in round. Use your stitch markers to mark where you begin or end up.

Round 2. HDC 2 in each stitches around ( 12hdc).

Round 3. HDC 2 in each stitches around ( 24 hdc)

Round 4. HDC 1 in the first stitch, hdc 2 in the next. Repeat all around ( 36 hdc). 

Round 5. HDC 2 in each stitches around. At the end of this round your circle will be a little wavy like this... (72 hdc)
Round 6. HDC in each stitch around. (72 hdc)

Round 7-21. Repeat Round 6. Then Change color to black.  (72 hdc) 

Round 22. With black yarn, hdc in each stitch around.  Then change back to Aran Fleck (72 hdc) 

Round 23. HDC in each stitch around. (72 hdc)

Round 24.  Camel stitch in each stitch around using sc or sc in the third loop of the hdc in the previous round. (72 sc)

Round 25-30.  Sc in each stitch around. ( 72 sc).

Fasten off and weave all ends with your tapestry needle.

Then make your pompom in black and add a little aran fleck yarn to get this effect. 

And thank so very much to my son for modeling this hat for me. When I asked him to "look this way honey" this is what he did.. lol

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!
