Introduction

This slouch hat was inspired by my Mary’s Newsboy free crochet hat pattern. I liked the overall look of the Mary’s Newsboy very much but I also wanted something a little more slouchier. This hat is a mix between a slouch and a semi slouch (your look will vary depending on how much tension you use). A very slouchy version will becoming soon, though the style may vary slightly. I’m not done playing around with this particular look yet. I really love the way the brim looks and I’ve got a ton more idea’s to use with it.

Materials List

Red Heart yarn or any worsted weight yarn
Hat hook used is a 9.00mm (N) hook – be sure to check gauge you may have to go up to 10.0mm (P)
Brim hook used is 6.00mm (J) hook-  if you needed a larger hook to obtain gauge in hat you will want to use a 6.5mm (K) hook
embroidery needle to weave in ends

Finished Size

Diameter of fitted band= 19”
Height (w/o brim) 8.5”

Gauge

1st 2 rounds= 3”

Notes

Be sure to use loose tension when making this hat. Please be sure to check your gauge. The hook used is a 9.00mm (N) hook so you only have one more hook size to go up to 10.0mm (P).
Brim is optional but will require two strands of same color. You can either work from both ends of a skein or you can use two skeins. OR you can wind a ball to set aside before you begin (I wound the yarn around three of my fingers (closed) 50x to be safe)
The brim is completed with a 6.00mm (J) hook but you may find you need to use a 6.5mm (K) if you crochet tight. But since it is a slouch hat the fit is looser and more forgiving over all.
The overall look of this hat is a slight slouch or semi slouch. A very slouchy version will be posted next.

Don't click on any of the links within the pattern....they go to a spammed sight and you can't get back unless you start over.  Otherwise it's a very pretty design!

I am the owner of this blog.  I'm not sure what you mean by don't click on any links?  I do have infolinks advertising on my site but they should not take you off of the site.  I'd like to hear back from you so I can figure out what you mean and resolve any issues.  Thanks
