The Matteo Slouchy is a textured hat with a slouch fit. This bottom up hat crochets up beautifully in worsted weight yarn.

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.

The Yarn

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! Pun intended.

  • 1 ball of Lion Brand Heartland Yarn* a #4 medium weight yarn (100% Acrylic, 5 oz. / 142 g, 251 yd. / 230 m) color: Joshua Tree.

Pattern Notes

  1. Fits Teen to Adults with head circumference of 21″
  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.

  1. 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?

  2. Thank you Christa, and your super fast reply – I can get going now – have a super say and I’ll let you know how it goes 🙂

  3. Great! I’d love to see it when you’re done! And let me know if you have any more questions!

  4. Hi Christa, so far so good, I’m at the point where I now need to start decreasing. At this point to it almost seems as if the hat could be reversible, the pattern that the {FPDC in next, DC} makes looks good too if you turn the hat inside out.

    What I was wondering is there anyway to decrease and still maintain that same pattern – what I find now is that the change from fpdc dc to dc only is make such a huge difference and for me that is not looking so good, I’ve tried to still incorporate the fpdc in the row when decreasing it seems to be working, but just thought you may have a better idea

  5. Hi, I have a couple of ideas, if you want to try them. I’m thinking maybe you could skip stitches instead of dc2tog? So You could do a few row of (fpdc, skip, dc, skip) and repeat that. Or you could try doing a few more rows of the pattern and then just sewing it together, pulling it into a circle with a running stitch? Then it would be the same texture right up to the top. The top will be bunchier I think. I hope those help & let me know what you try!

  6. 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?

  7. 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 [email protected] and I’ll try to see what I can do to help you.
