Crochet Tutorial: Slouchy Hat

Crochet Tutorial: Slouchy Hat

As many of you have seen, I cover my hair. When I go out for a quick run to the grocery store, I’ll throw on a beanie really fast and run out the door! My go-to hats are these super slouchy ones. Today’s video is on how to make one of these great projects.

When I’m out and about wearing this hat, I get so many compliments and people ask me where I got it. I love to tell them I made it myself, and you will too!

Whenever I have made my version of this hat, I always use yarn that has very vibrant colors and different variations of jewel tones. This example in today’s blog uses Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn in the Stained Glass color.

Slouchy Hat
This super slouchy multicolored beanie can be worked up in an afternoon! I promise, you will get years of wear out of each hat you make! They make great gifts, not just to yourself, haha, but to others!

At the very end of the video tutorial, I explain how to make it smaller for child sizes. The written pattern is for a teen/adult sized hat.
Keep Calm
You could add your own embellishments by adding buttons, a bow, or any other fashionable item to make it your own!

Follow along with this video to learn how to make this slouchy hat.

Crochet Tutorial: One Skein Beret

With the change in seasons, it always gets me excited to try new winter projects. Although today is August 25th, 2015, the temperatures in the past few days were autumn-like here in Wisconsin, USA. The kind of weather where you feel the need to grab a jacket on your way out the door or wrap up on the couch in a warm afghan. I found this pattern by Lion Brand Yarns. It’s for a tam/beret. It appeared to be something I would enjoy making in a quick sitting, and it didn’t disappoint!

One Skein Beret

In less than 2 hours I was able to make this cute chunky yarn tam. After completing the beret, there are a few things I would have changed. One would be the size, I made it a hair too small. I would adjust the hook size and use a 10.00mm hook (which the pattern calls for) instead of the 9.00mm hook I used. I also would have widened the brim band that fits around my forehead maybe making 16 or 18 rounds instead of the 14 that the pattern calls for. That is just my own personal preference to this pattern. Overall, I am very pleased with how this turned out. It is your classic tam beret, and it is extremely fashionable for the upcoming cooler weather.

To view the written pattern, visit Lion Brand’s website or click here. You need to register and have an account with them to view the pattern.
