This V stitch Cluster Slouch Hat is so easy to make and you have the choice how long to make it. Crochet a beanie or a slouch hat! The way the colors blend together gives you lots of options as well.

 

My daughter has grown up so much since I first used her as a model, we’ve really had fun. Thank you all for your continued encouragement and a special thanks to you Patrons who support my channel every month the way you do! This crocheted slouch hat would look awesome with a pom pom on top, it would had weight and make the slouch hat more slouchy!

Making the rim of the Hat

 

To Start:

Ch 64 or a number divisible by 8. Use this multiple to make any size hat you need. Just don’t forget to reduce the total length of the hat as well as you reduce the size. Sl st in beginning ch to create a loop.

 

 

 

Round 1

Sl st into beginning ch and ch 1 and DC in the st you just sl sitiched into, DC in all sts around. Make sure you count your sts and have 64 or the number you started with. sl st in beginning st (not the ch)

 

 

 

Round 2

ch 1 and BPDC into first post, BPDC on post of next stitch as well. * FPDC on next 2 sts, BPDC on next 2 sts * repeat for row. sl st in 1st BPDC (64 sts)

 

 

 

 

 

Rounds 3 & 4

ch 1 and FPDC into first post, FPDC on post of next stitch as well. * BPDC on next 2 sts, FPDC on next 2 sts * repeat for row. sl st in 1st FPDC (64 sts)

 

 

 

Round 5

ch 1 and BPDC into first post, BPDC on post of next stitch as well. * FPDC on next 2 sts, BPDC on next 2 sts * repeat for row. sl st in 1st BPDC (64 sts)

 

 

 

 

Now we start on the stitch portion on the hat

 

 

Round 6

sc in first 2 sts, * ch 2, skip 2, sc in next 2 sts. * sl st in beg sc (64 sts)

 

 

NOTE: If you want to add color like I did in this hat, then you want to change colors every SC row, and then switch to a different color on the DC cluster row.

Time to Reduce!

 

 

Round 1

Ch 2 and create a DC cluster in ch 2 space, this time instead of chaining 2 like you normally would, instead go into the next space and do a DC cluster there. Do a DC sluster in every space between clusters and in the ch 2 spaces.

 

Then repeat for the row. DO NOT chain in between clusters. sl st in beg cluster

 

 

 

 

Round 2

ch 2 and DC DEC . To end row: sl st into beginning ch 2 space.

 

 

 

 

 

Round 3

ch 1 and sc in every stitch around. sl st in beginning sc.

 

 

 

Now chain 1 and leaving a long tail, enough to sew up your hat, cut your yarn.

 

 

Turn your hat inside out and thread your tapestry needle with your long tail. Weave through the stitches making a draw string to pull hole closed. Tie some knots. Hide tail.
