Did You Know?

The notion of the "slouch hat" comes from the brimmed hats of military uniforms worn by many nations for over one hundred years. "Slouch" comes from one side of the brim drooping down on these hats. It's also known as the "Australian bush hat" and it's very recognizable as the hat Theodore Roosevelt wore when he was part of the "Rough Riders" during the Spanish-American War. 

While the hats that we consider "slouchy" today don't usually have a brim and aren't associated with the military, the history behind it is interesting. The "slouch" hats or beanies we see today have a droop in the back where the beanie flops down because the pointy end doesn't fit the roundness of the back of the head. These hats are worn by many, but are typically associated with today's "hipster" culture. "Hipsters" could be seen as the movement against mainstream culture, a war of sorts. 

The two ideas of "slouch hats" have some relation to each other because they both identify their wearers: military person or hipster. Share your new knowledge the next time you see someone wearing a slouch hat or beanie. Better yet, if you crochet one, you can tell people about your insight into the slouch hat trend.

I'm giving this Easy Slouchy Beanie a four-star rating because of the color used. This color doesn't appeal to me much. If I were to make this kind of hat, I would make this in earth colors or vibrant colors but not this shade of purple. However, this is the perfect beanie for winter as the double crochets are more compact when finished and can give the wearer the needed warmth and protection on that part of the body during those cold winter months. Thanks for the free pattern.

These are my favorite kind of hats to wear in the winter. Can't wait to make it!

This was a great way to learn how to crochet the magic circle. Thanks!

I love the color of this beanie and the slouchy fit is totally on trend. I can't wait to make it!

I crocheted this hat and it turned out great. I am In love with the style. I had to take off some rows because I thought it fitted my head fine.

I haven't tried this pattern yet Collin, but am trying to find the perfect yarn color before I start. Was there anything confusing or hard to understand throughout this pattern? Any tips or tricks for someone who hasn't tried this pattern before?

I will love this slouchy,can't wait to make it.

So i was making this hat and it was wayyyy too big for my head..can't I have a lot of hair.. So I took some rows off of double crochets and started the single crochet rows.. Better.

It was a bit confusing at first while I worked out how to do the magic circle. After that, it only took a little bit of concentration and persistence!

I can't find the pattern so be able to save it . Can anyone help .?

what you do is click on it where it says Click here for crochet pattern abd then on that site click it where it says looking for more patterns? click here and it will bring you to the pattern

can't seem to download the pattern

save this pattern !

I have made two of these hats in two days. The pattern is wonderfully easy, even for me. Just pay attention to the first 8? rows, these are the increase rows. After that, it's just double crochet for several more rounds, till you finish with several rows of single crochet as a rim. The pattern is easily adaptable to suit individual tastes. Try to avoid "big" yarn, or you will end up with a huge monstrosity. My first attempt I used soy silk, a little hard to work with, but soft and slouchy. The second hat made with Lion brand cotton ease, my favorite go to yarn. added a row of crossed double crochet for variety. Even if you have never made a hat before, you can make this one!

I made this hat with a linen color yarn that I got at Joanne's Fabrics. It made by Joanne's. New I think. It came out a little long and a little tight for my daughter, but absolutely beautiful. It looks like it came from an expensive boutique. Love it and will do another one with a few adjustments. Thank you for the pattern. '


going to attempt tonight

Simple yet chic...I like this :)

I see a lot of baby stuff and chochet, I do not crochet and sometimes I do baby things but I need to some stuff for ages 10 and up teens thanks
