Chunky Slouchy Beanie Crochet Pattern | Ana Slouch Hat

Sharing is caring!

The Ana is a chunky slouch crochet pattern that brings the texture in a bulky weight yarn. The stitches crochet up beautifully in the chunky yarn and really pop.

The bobble like, pineapple stitch creates an eye catching detail on this hat. This chunky weight crochet pattern is worked bottom up.

You can easily customize the ribbing for a perfect fit. I’ve designed the Ana as a slouchy beanie pattern, but this is also easy to adjust for a more fitted beanie.

The Ana is a free crochet beanie pattern that matches the Ana Pocket Shawl. This cozy rectangle shawl crochets up quickly in chunky weight yarn. Which means, you can make them both and wear them soon!

Since this chunky hat is crocheted from the bottom up, you can leave off a few rounds for a traditional beanie fit, if you prefer.


The Ana Hat pattern features Woolspun yarn. Since I had just one ball left, I knew a matching hat was the perfect make.

It’s a chunky/bulky weight yarn, #5. Lion Brand brought this yarn back, you can check it out here.

But if you can’t find it, or want to use a #5 bulky yarn from your stash that works too.

Color Made Easy is great substitute for this yarn.

Since this is a matchy matchy pattern, the Ana Hat uses the ehdc – extended half double crochet stitch and pineapple stitches, just like the shawl.

There are tutorials for both of these stitches, if you need the. You can find the extended half double crochet tutorial here and the pineapple stitch tutorial here.

For decreasing the crown I use a version of the crocheting two stitches together. Since this hat is made with the extended half double crochet, I use the same stitch in the decrease. The steps are outlined under “Stitches” below.

Skill Level



For this hat pattern we will start with the ribbing and then move to the body of the hat. If you need help with crocheting ribbing start with this tutorial.

To keep the stitches looking just like the Ana Pocket Shawl, once we’re on to the body of the hat we’ll join and turn the rounds so that we work on both sides.

Finished Dimensions

Hat measures 9” / 23 cm tall, hat width is 8.5” / 22 cm at ribbing, 9.5” / 24 cm at body. Hat stretches to fit a variety head sizes, 19” / 48 cm-22” / 56 cm.


This hat pattern is for one, adult size hat. To adjust it to fit a smaller/larger head size, you can adjust how long your ribbing is to start.

This chunky yarn has quite a bit of stretchy, the ribbing ease is 3″-4″ so you’ll want to crochet your ribbing 3″-4″ smaller than the head size you’re fitting.

To Fit Head Size

Baby Size: 14 – 16″ head circumference, suggest 10″ – 12″ of ribbing.

Toddler: 16″ – 18″ head circumference, suggest 12″ – 14″ of ribbing.

Child : 18″ – 20″ head circumference, suggest 14″ – 16″ of ribbing.

Adult Size (this pattern): 21 – 24″ head circumference, suggest 17″ – 20″ of ribbing.

Once you have your ribbing adjustments, you will work stitches around the top of it. Keep an stitch count that’s a multiple of 4. I’ve included hat height suggestions in the pattern for the slouchy fit.
