Striped Slouchy Hat Free Crochet Pattern

This striped slouchy hat is one in a series of light weight, natural fiber hats I’ve been creating with cancer patients in mind. Check out my other posts in this series with the Crunch Stitch BeanieĀ and the Summer Chemo Cap for more ideas.

I made sure to keep the stitches tight and worked a pattern without holes so this slouch hat still provides full coverage. I’ve loved working with Bamboo Pop! yarn. It’s soft and supple and comes in an amazing variety of colors. I ordered mine from LoveKnitting.



Materials:

1 ball each of Bamboo Pop! yarn in Clover and Lime Green

Size F crochet hook

yarn needle and scissors

Ribbed Band Pattern:

Finished size is 19.5″ X 1″

With Clover, Ch. 7 (This forms the width of your ribbed band)

Row 1: SC into 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across, turn. (6)

Row 2: Into Back Loop only: SC across the row, turn. (6)

Rows 3-68: Into Back Loop only SC across, turn. (6)

These rows form the length of your ribbed band. Once you band is the desired length, fold it in half, forming a circle and sew the short sides together. Cut your yarn and weave in the ends.

Cut yarn and leave a long tail. Sew the hole together with the yarn tail and yarn needle.

Add a pom pom if you like! I chose to leave it off on this one, but I think it would be cute!
