Slouchy Ocean Blue Hat

The Slouchy Ocean Blue Hat has just the right amount of slouch to give this beanie a relaxed feel. This crochet hat pattern uses simple crochet stitches to create a lovely grid-like mesh, and the blue tones have a such a warm, fresh vibe. The softness of the yarn is perfectly suited for your hair. As a unisex pattern, this would work for anyone in your life, so it would be an excellent gift idea if you are searching for something personal to work up. It will feel just right for those brisk days that don't require excessive bundling but could still merit a little protection for your ears.

Round 1 2 are written clearly are easy to understand. Rounds 3 4 I can't make heads nor tails of. All I know is that for Round 3 THIS does NOT equal 30 stitches! This is what is written Ch 4, 1 dc in next dc, ch 1, 1 dc in same st, ch 1, 1 dc in next dc, ch 1 two times, 1 dc in same st, ch 1, sl st to join to 3rd ch 30 dc 30 ch 1 spaces. I'm getting like 5 stitches. And Round 4 is written like this, to get 40 stitches Ch 4, 1 dc in next dc, ch 1 two times, 1 dc in same st, ch 1, 1 dc in next dc, ch 1 three times, 1 dc in same st, ch 1, sl st to join to 3rd ch 40 dc 40 ch 1 spaces. I'm getting 7 stitches, 8 if you count the turning chain. I think part of the pattern has been left out, but I hazard to GUESS what it should be! Seems to be happening a lot lately - I see a pattern I like and want to try, but the written instructions are not clear or they are incomplete. Grrr.

This pattern really does look like more of a beginner pattern than an intermediate one, which is just as well as I have been crocheting for years but still consider myself a basic crocheter. I think this hat would be more of a fashion accessory than something to keep your head warm, with all of the 'ventilation', so it would suit me on days that are warm but you still want your hair in place.

We were just at the ocean yesterday and it was a very good day and the water didnt look quite this blue but it was close. This pattern is rated as intermediate but I think it could be rated as a beginner. The stiches used are pretty basic and easy to work.

This slouchy ocean blue hat is started from the "top" of the hat and I was wondering just how stretchy is it? The notes indicate the size when the hat is not on the head. With wear, it won't be stretched out so much that it no longer fits the head and have the "slouchy" look? Just wondering, I have a very thick head of hair.

I love how open this hat is. Its almost like a net in hat form, and I can see it appealing to both men and women. The designer has the project rated as Advanced Beginner, and that sounds about right. The only slight tricky stitch is working in the Back Loop Only. There are three options for downloading the pattern for a small fee, too.

This slouchy hat does look very comfortable. The directions are clear cut and it just looks like it repeats until the end when the band is created by crocheting in the back loops. I like the open design because I have very thick hair and I need ventilation.

I highly recommend this pattern for this slouchy hat. I made this for myself. I like it so much and it was really fun to make. I ended up making a couple more for gifts for my girlfriend and her kids. Try this one! I also see that she has a chunky waffle cone hat pattern. It's amazing how a change in yarn can make such a different look.

I recently lost a pretty white winter hat very similar to this. I was dismayed upon losing it, and am delighted to see that all is not lost, but I could potentially create my own. This hat is the #bestideaever!!

This hat looks so comfy! The blue color is gorgeous.
