slouchy hat crochet pattern

I have made 100s of these hats over the past couple years. Before I started this blog & my adventure with pattern writing, I sold my knitwear & newborn photo props at craft fairs & on Etsy.  This adult slouchy hat was my number one seller along with a simple scarf. With that being said, I never wrote down the pattern. Why in the world didn’t I write it down?

I finally sat down long enough to crochet this slouchy hat & lucky for you this time I brought a pen & notebook! Lucky for me, it was like riding a bicycle, the stitches just came right back. Let’s get started with the Adult Slouchy Hat Pattern.

You Should Know This

  • Working in the backstitch– also known as working in the 3rd loop or camel stitch.
  • Use the “No-Cut Join Method” Video OR use the basic slip stitch method to join at the end of each round. The No-Cut Join Method will give you an almost seamless join and keep the rounds even.
  • A crochet cheat sheet to help you with stitch abbreviations.
  • To crochet evenly around the hat band watch this video to get rid of the holes between the hat band and the first round of the hat body.
