Posted by bonitapatterns@gmail.com on

This free crochet pattern for a slouch has all to do with my love for textured stitches!  I wanted to share with you this easy and quick hat that you can make in a just a few hours.  It is ideal for last-minute gifts, and for those of you who sell finished pieces, where time is of the essence. I would love to hear what you think about this one. Please  leave your comments!

Special Stitch Used:

Front Post Double Crochet (FPdc) – Yo and insert hook from the front to the back around the post of the dc of previous row. Complete as for a regular dc stitch.

Pattern Notes:

  • Slouch is worked in continuous rounds, without joining. This will give a polished look without an unnecessary seam. Use stitch marker to keep track of your rounds if needed.
  • The use of a much larger hook than what is normally suggested for a worsted weight yarn is intentional to produce drape on the slouch.
  • The stitch pattern used makes the hat reversible where one side you have a ribbed look and the other you have a textured spiral look.

Directions for Slouch:

  • Made the hat, it does not have the rib texture, picture does not look the same as the first picture, that is deceiving. It looks more like the second picture.
