Textured Slouchy Hat Free Crochet Pattern

I love how this textured slouchy crochet hat worked up. The amazing texture is achieved with the front post double crochet stitches.

This textured slouchy hat pattern is in sizes teen/adult. The hat has a single crochet band. The tube or body of the hat has double crochet and front post double crochets.

My daughter was quite intrigued with this hat in particular. She just wanted to reach up and grab it. This yarn is so grab-able too!

I love the subtle color variations in Lion Brand’s Heartland. It’s one of my favorite worsted weight yarn.

I love how soft this yarn feels when I’m crocheting with it. Combine that with the sheen and all the gorgeous colors to choose from and I’m hooked! See what I did there 😉

Pattern Notes:

  1. Teen-Adult size
  2. This hat is worked from the bottom up.
  3. Ch 2 does not count as a stitch.
  4. Front post double crochet stitches will always be crocheted around double crochet stitches, so each round you will alternate starting with a FPDC or a DC stitch.
  5. To adjust this hat pattern for a different size, use an odd stitch count.


4″ x 4″ = 3.5 sc x 4 rows of sc

I love the look of this slouchy hat, a;most makes me miss the cold weather up North (almost).. I love how helpful you are to people having problems.


Monday 23rd of April 2018

Haha! Yep, we’re ready to move on the warm weather crochet now! Thank you!

I am so lost I have tried to do this pattern twice now and each time i try it starts curling really funky, almost as if I am adding too many stitches once I reach row 8. I chained 2, then I FPDC'ed around the first DC of the previous row. Am I supposed to skip the next stitch and then DC in the next available place or what should I do to avoid adding extra stitches?


Thursday 1st of March 2018

Hi Summer, thanks for asking! I’m sorry it’s giving you trouble. Have you tried counting your stitches? You should just be alternating between fpdc & dc. It’s a loose hat since it’s a slouchy. Would you like to send me a pic and I can look more closely? Either here or and I’ll try to see what I can do to help you.

Just what i was looking for but have lost your at this point to early {2 DC in next, DC 3} what exactly does that mean - 2 dc in next stitch and then 1 in the next 3?


Friday 8th of December 2017

Yes, 2dc in the next stitch and then 1 dc each in the next 3 stitches. Hope that helps!
