Crochet Celtic Wave Slouch Beanie Pattern & Tutorial

Updated: Jan 16, 2019



Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! Today's free pattern is the Celtic Wave Slouch Beanie. I played with this stitch awhile ago and made a tiny hanging art out of it for my cubicle at work. Then, honestly I forgot about it!

I was summoned for Jury Duty but had to postpone due to a week long conference for work. When I finally came back and went to the courthouse, I grabbed the first ball of yarn I saw and a wooden hook (I wanted to bring lots of things but I wasn't sure what we could or couldn't take into a court house). My needles or scissors are "sharp objects". I figured a wooden hook was safe.

I didn't know what I was going to make but I knew I needed something to keep me busy while I waited. That's when I remembered about the swatch I made using this cable stitch.

I wanted to incorporate an "all over" cable pattern throughout the beanie however the number of stitches required just for the one set was too many so I decided to just make one set.

I used Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice for the Pattern & Tutorial and Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Sand Dunes for this one pictured below. You can definitely use any worsted weight yarn.

Most of my crochet patterns are adjustable to use with any weight yarn and customizable for any size. This one might be tricky because of the number of stitches needed to make the cables. Just remember that the smaller the size, the larger the cables will be.

PATTERN NOTES

I will provide instructions for an adult size but will include instructions to make it any size. The beginning ch1 does not count as a st. Work your first hdc st in the same st as the ch1. You will turn your work after each round. The cable section is worked over 15 sts, marked by stitch markers. Move markers up as you work if needed.


PATTERN

BRIM | US I 5.5mm Crochet Hook

Row 1: ch10 or any number of sts. This is the how wide your brim is.

1sc in the 2nd ch from the hook and into every ch across (9 sts).

Video for alternative brims: Watch it now!

Row 2: ch1, turn, 1sc tbl of every st across.

Repeat Row 2 until desired circumference size ending on the same side as the beg tail. Adjust size by crocheting less/more rows for a smaller/larger circumference.Measure brim while stretched. I crocheted approx 57 sts for an adult

Video for on how to measure your brim: Watch it now!

Seaming the brim

Align the 2 short ends together. Sew the two short ends of the brim together by working a sl st through the “chain” end of the brim and tbl of the other end of the brim. Flip brim inside out so the seam is on the inside. See above video for assistance with this section.

BODY | US J 6mm Crochet Hook

Set up round (Video): ch1, work 57sc sts around brim or 1 sc per row. Work additional sts for looser body. sl st to the first sc st. Mark the first st with a stitch marker (if needed). You should have approx. 1 st per row of brim. It doesn't matter if you're off a few sts (if you had 47 rows, you'd work approx 47 sc sts around).

Place a marker on the 22nd & 36th st on your brim (15 sts). This is the section you'll work your cables.

If you are adjusting and/or do not have the same number of sts as I do, then you'd want to find the middle, front of your brim on the opposite side of the seam (approx 28th st). Count 7 sts to the right and 7 sts to the left (15 sts). Mark each end of the 15 sts. You're basically just marking 15sts wherever you want to work the cables. If you're a Type A person and must count your sts to get it exactly at the center, then, go ahead, no one will judge. Ha!
