The Raspberry Stitch Slouch Hat is created from a stitch I discovered. It looks like the Raspberry Stitch for knitting so this is how it got it’s name. It can only be worked in the round and the stitch is created on the back side of the stitch. This is a fun technique to learn if you haven’t done a stitch like this before.

The Raspberry Stitch for Crochet
- starting your raspberry stitch
NOTE: This hat seems to tighten up more than the other stitches. If you find yours is getting to tight, go up one hook size and see if its better. 6 mm / G hook
The Raspberry stitch is made on the back side of the stitch, so you need to turn your work inside out to have the wrong side or back side of your crochet piece facing you. Once you’ve done that you’ll be ready to begin round 7.
Be sure to ch 1 and turn your work inside out.
In beginning stitch where you chained 1, you want to sc, dc, sc all into that same stitch. Sk 2 sts and repeat the stitch * sc, dc, sc all crocheted in the same stitch. sk 2 sts* repeat until you get to the beginning of the round.
If you flip your piece over to the back you can see the textured part of the stitch starting to form.
When you reach the end of the round you should have 2 sts that can be skipped. Place a marker here to make the first of your row, because now we’ll be working in one continuous row. Sc into the first sc as show in the picture below.
Then finish the Raspberry stitch by doing a DC and another SC worked in the same stitch.
If you have 3 spaces or a wider space at the end of your row, try slip stitching yourself closer before starting your 1st Raspberry stitch or else it will leave a gap.
Skip 2 stitches, sc, dc, sc into next sc. Repeat this stitch until your heat measures a total of 10 inches or 25 cms long.
TURN YOUR WORK BACK INSIDE OUT
You want the textured berry part of the stitch to be facing you now.
