Crochet Willow Slouch Beanie Free Pattern


Hi! Today's free pattern is on The Crochet Willow Slouch. With the weather warming up, we all need something breezy, loose and fun! In hindsight, I might have chosen a lighter weight yarn.


I used Lion Brand's Jeans in Top Stitch & Stonewash I've had these laying around so I wanted to use it up.

INSTRUCTIONS

BRIM | Smaller hook size


Foundation (MC): Ch 10 or as many ch sts as you want your brim size.


Note: Video for different brims! Adjust brim to accommodate the height of your beanie.

Row 1 (MC): 1sc into the 2nd ch from the hook and into each ch across. Ch1 and turn. (9 sts)


Row 2 (MC): 1sc tbl in the first st and every st across. Ch1 and turn. (9 sts)


Repeat row 2 until desired circumference ending on the same side as the beginning tail. Measure brim while slightly stretched. You want the brim snug but not over stretched. See chart on page 1 for standard circumference sizes.

Example: I worked 61 rows (23”) for a med adult.

Seaming the brim | Video Tutorial

Align the 2 short ends together. Work a sl st through the “chain” end of the brim and through the back loops of the other end of the brim. Flip brim right side out so the seam is on the inside.


BODY | Switch to larger hook size

Set up round (Video): Ch1, work sc sts loosely in multiples of 8 sts around the brim. Join with a sl st to the 1st sc.


Notes: You should have 1 sc for every row of brim. Increase number of sc sts to get a number in multiples of 8 sts.

Rounds 1 (CC): ch3 (counts as dc throughout). 1dc in every st around. Join with a sl st to the 3rd ch from the beg ch3.

I’d love to see your completed work!


SPECIAL STITCHES

fptr – Front Post Treble Crochet

yo twice, insert hook around post, yo, pull up a loop, [yo, pull through 2 loops] 3 times.

Rep from * around ending your last rep at **. Join with a sl st to the 3rd ch from the beg ch3.


Repeat rounds 1-2 until beanie measures the desired (ear to crown) height measurement (see below chart) ending after round 2. Measure from the bottom of the brim. Adjust slouch by working less/more rounds keeping in mind the decrease adds approx. 2.5”.
