I had a lady comment on a post of mine asking me “to do a hat design again because it’s been awhile and she always liked my designs.” So to honor all my long time followers who are fans of my slouch hats I designed this one for you. This design makes a great Unisex hat! Great for men and women!

 

This textured crochet slouch hat is based off the same stitches I used to make the “Bulky Afghan Crochet Pattern

Starting from row 2 this pattern is done in ROWs and not Rounds so you will be turning your work every row. It’s important to the look of the stitches so I recommend that you do not try to do this hat in rounds or else it will look different.

It won’t be perfectly even here, but that is okay, we’ll be fixing this later.

The ch 2 in this project won’t count as a stitch but will mark the beginning of a row.

Your hat should measure around 10 inches or 25 cms

Now we’re ready to close up the hat.

 

 

 

Closing the hat

Round 1

Using the 1st where you sl stitched and chained 1, sc in this same space. Then sc dec. repeat, * sc, sc dec*

Sl st in beginning sc.

You should end having 43 sts. Or there about.

 

 

 

 

Round 2

We’re not turning our work every round now so just ch 1 and continue.

Using the 1st where you sl stitched and chained 1, sc in this same space and sc the following stitch as well. Then sc dec. repeat, * sc in the next 2 sts, then sc dec*

You should end having 29 sts. Or there about.

Sl st in beginning sc. Leaving a LONG tail to use for sewing, ch 1 and cut your yarn.

 

 

Turn your hat inside out so that you have the wrong side facing you. Weave your tapestry needle in and out through a few of the stitches to gather a few, then pull your tail through. Continue to gather us all your stitches this way. Then pull your tail tight and it will pull the hole closed. Sew going through each side of the hole to ensure it won’t come loose.

 

 

If you have any problems doing this, you can watch the end of any of my slouch hat tutorials to be taken through the closing of the hat process.

 

 

Now Hide your tails and turn your hat back to the correct side facing you.

Grab your crochet hook again and create a slip knot again on your hook. Now on the rim of the hat. We’ll be working in the bottom stitches of our previous SCFS’s from the start.

 

 

Attach your yarn to the beginning st and ch 1. Grab your beginning tail and pull it through the bottom of your first attached st to even out that space. Do this with your hook or a needle.

 

This will even up your row for you. Then you want to do 2 rows of Glover sts for these 2 rows. Then sl st in beg GS and ch 1, cut yarn. Hide your tails.
