Striped Slouchy Hat Free Crochet Pattern

Sharing is caring!

Learn how to crochet a bottom up slouchy hat. Create the ribbing first for a perfect fit. This textured crochet stitch is easy to achieve and looks great with the slouchy fit.

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 Beanie 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.

You can purchase an ad-free pdf of this pattern in my Etsy shop!

Materials:

1 ball (291 yds) each of Bamboo Pop! yarn in Clover and Lime Green, or comparable #3 dk weight yarn.

3.75mm (F) crochet hook

yarn needle and scissors

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!
