Rhys Slouchy Beanie
Over the years, slouchy hats have become one of my favorite projects to crochet. They are fun to wear, gift, donate, and sell! I prefer to crochet my slouchy hats from the bottom-up, and in this tutorial I'm going to share how to cinch a bottom-up slouchy hat closed. This simple tutorial will help make your hats slouchier and cozier. I'll share how to cinch a crochet slouchy hat closed in five easy steps… and one of the steps is optional, and the other one you have to do anyway to finish your project. It's that easy!
This beautiful crochet slouchy hat pattern in the pictures below was made by Erin Sharp and it's such a lovely, feminine project, don't you think? It will surely take your winter outfit to the next level and make it really put together! I love it!
If you are looking for one of the easiest slouchy beanie crochet patterns you can make, this is it! This slouch is classy, it's got just a bit of texture, and is super easy to crochet. All you need to know is how to make the single crochet and the double crochet! Beanies that are worked as one rectangle and seamed are excellent for beginners. Instead of hoping that a top-down beanie will match gauge and come out the correct size, you can measure as you go to make sure that you are on track per the pattern.
The Dragonfly Slouchy in the pictures below was created by the very talented Maria Bittner. It is a thin slouch decorated with voided-out dragonfly patterns that give it a lacy flair. Moreover, they're great for ventilation, so this thick-ish slouch won't be too hot.
"This quick and easy slouchy crochet zig zag beanie may look complicated but it's actually very simple once you have mastered how to complete the V Stitch. (Don't be scared if you're a beginner, it's only a clever combination of double crochet stitches). I designed it to work with both chunky and bulky yarns as they give such a lovely texture to the stitches. I made mine in cotton which means it's popular for summer too (it never gets too warm in North West England!) Crocheted in the round from a magic circle it is worked top down so it can be adapted to any size from a cosy beanie or add more rows to create a more slouchy hipster look."
