How To Crochet The Slouchy Beanie

To crochet this slouchy beanie all you have to do is crochet a rectangle. Then you’ll assemble it to a beanie by seaming with a tapestry needle at the short edge to create a tube. Finally you will cinch in the top of the beanie to close it.

What makes a beanie slouchy is the length of the beanie from the forehead to the top of the beanie. The longer you make it, the more slouchy the beanie will be. The suggested length or hat height to create a slouchy beanie varies from 7 to 9.5 inches, depending on which size you make.

The final technique used on this slouchy hat is the fact that two colors are used, but you can easily change it to use only one color.

Yarn For The Crochet Hat

The suggested yarn for the slouchy hat pattern is Naturgarn from Filcolana. It’s a super warm yarn & perfect for winter wear. 

To make this crochet hat you can substitute with almost any 6 super bulky yarn.

Make sure you create the correct size by measuring your head circumference and also testing gauge. 

Honestly, you could also substitute with a thinner yarn, such as a worsted weight yarn. However, you will then have to increase the number of stitches and rows you crochet to achieve the correct size.

How Long Does It Take To Crochet That?

How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

Crochet Pattern Notes

  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms (more details).
  • All measurements given are unblocked.
  • Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.
  • Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours!
  • Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger (more details).
  • Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge (more details).
  • This pattern is written for 7 sizes, where the numbers for the different sizes is given in parenthesis like this: 12-18 months (18-24 months) 2-5 years (child) teen (woman) man. If just one number is given, it applies to all sizes. I recommend that you highlight or circle the size you’re making before you begin, to make the pattern easier to follow.

Stitches Used In The Crochet Pattern

Bubblepattern (BP):

The bubblepattern is crocheted in 1 stitch & 1 stitch will be skipped. Each bubblepattern contains 2 stitches.

1. The bubble.

2. The Chain.

Written description: *Draw up a loop from next stitch, yo, draw up a loop from same st, yo, pull yarn through 4 loops on hook, ch 1, sk 1 st*, repeat from *to*.

*Start each row with sk 1, because the “bubble” will always be placed in a “bubble” when crocheting in rows.

See tutorial here.

Techniques Used In The Crochet Pattern

Changing Color With Different Color On Different Rows:

When working with different colors on different rows, you’ll never finish the last stitch on the last row with one color, with the color you where working with.

Do all the steps of the stitch, then leave the last step unworked. Yarn over with the color for the next st & pull yarn through.

Repeat this for every row you change colors to make the color changes look beautiful.

Finishing And Assembly

  1. With the wrong side facing. With a needle, seam the side of the beanie.
  2. Still working with the needle, pull through the top of every other stitch on the top of the hat with the  same yarn tail, in a way that makes it possible to pull tight after going through those stitches.
  3. Pull tight & fasten thread.
  4. Fasten all threads & weave in ends.
  5. Make a pom-pom if you’d like & sew on.
  6. For extra warmth, line the hat fleece fabric.
