Hi everyone! Thank you for stopping by! Today, I have a free slouch pattern to share with you all! I've included a video tutorial as well to assist because I felt the stitches were a little difficult to explain!
Now let's talk about the Rippled Slouch Beanie. I originally started this design using bulky weight yarn, Loops & Threads, Charisma (one of my favorite acrylic brands). As I got halfway, I didn't like the design at all. Since I didn't want to frog it, I kept going until I finished it.... it actually started to grow on me!
I liked it even better when I put it on my son's head!
So then of course, I thought maybe it'll look better in worsted weight yarn, you never know!
I started to get excited as I worked this pattern in the worsted weight yarn. It looked better in a solid color too (maybe it was the variegated yarn!?!?!). I decided to use half double crochet (hdc) stitches for the worsted weight. I'm a big fan of the hdc ribbing!
Any weight yarn | I used I Love this Yarn from Hobby Lobby in Dark Raspberry US I 5.5mm Crochet Hook (& 6mm for main portion is optional) | The Superwoman hook is from TheSpeckedClay
Stitch Marker (Optional)
ch - Chain
st(s) - Stitch(es)
sl st - Slip Stitch
sc - Single Crochet
tbl - Through Back Loop
hdc - Half Double Crochet
sp - Space
sk - Skip
sc2tog - Single Crochet 2 stitches together
Special Stitch: frdc - Front raised double crochet: work into the right dc post from 2 rounds below, going from right to left of post & complete dc st normally.
I recommenced measuring as you go for the size you want.
ch 9 or as many ch sts as you want for the height of your brim. I'm working half double crochet sts but you can easily work sl st, or sc sts for the brim.
Row 1: Now you want to work hdc sts into the 2nd ch from the hook and into every ch st to the end.
Row 2: ch1 & turn your work, 1hdc tbl in the same st & tbl of every st to the end.
Repeat Row 2 until you reach the size you want the circumference ending on the same side as the beginning tail. Keep in mind that the brim is stretchy and also stretches over time. Measure the brim while you stretch it where you think it should be.
Now you want to join your brim. Make sure you end on the same side as the beginning tail.
Holding the end (with hook) bring the other short end in front. Sew the 2 short ends by working a sl st through the chain sts & tbl of the other side.
Flip brim inside out so seam is on inside.
Switch to the 6mm hook (optional)
Round 1: ch1, 1sc in every st around the brim making sure you have multiples of 3 sts. If you find the top (main) beanie is too snug, increase in multiples of 3 sts. sl st to the first sc st.
Round 2: ch4 (counts as a dc st + ch1). 1dc into 2nd st to the RIGHT of the ch3 st. *sk 2 sts, 1dc into the next st, ch1, 1dc into the 1st skipped st. Repeat from * around. Sl st to the 3rd ch from the beginning ch4.
Round 3: ch1, 1sc in every sc st & every ch1 sp around. Sl st to the first sc st.
Round 4: Sl st in the next 2 sts. ch4 (counts as a dc st + ch1). 1frdc. *sk 2 sts, 1dc into the next st, ch1, 1frdc. Repeat from * around. Sl st to the 3rd ch from the beginning ch4.
Repeat Rounds 3 & 4 until piece measures about 1-2” taller than the height measurement for the size you are making. Stop after round 3.
Round 1: ch3 (counts as a dc st). 1frdc. *sk 2 sts, 1dc into the next st, 1frdc. Repeat from * around. Sl st to the 3rd ch from the beginning ch3.
Round 2: ch1, *1sc into the next 2 sts. sc2tog. Repeat from * around. 1sc in any remaining sts. Sl st to the first sc.
Round 3: ch1, *1sc into the next st. sc2tog. Repeat from * around. 1sc in any remaining sts. Sl st to the first sc.
Round 4: ch1, sc2tog around.1sc in any remaining sts. Sl st to the first sc.
Fasten off leaving a tail. Using a yarn needle, weave the yarn through the sts on top of the beanie and tighten to cinch it up.
Secure and weave in all ends.
Now you can add a pom pom if you'd like or just leave it as is!
