SLOUCHY BEAN 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.

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!
We all love beans and now we are surely going to fall in love with these bean stitch beanie hats too. The gorgeous bean stitch is adding so much to the beauty and style of the hat and making it look so pretty and cool. Also, the pom pom ball at the end is adding so much to its beauty and appeal. Details here!
The Nina Bean Beanie Hat is a crochet hat worked side to side as a rectangle which is then folded, seamed with top sewn shut and pom pom added at the end. The crochet ribbing is worked as part of the stitch pattern not added on later! An easy to memorize 4-row repeat creates beautiful texture throughout the crochet beanie hat with ridges and a faux cable made with chains and single crochet stitches. Crochet stitches used include chains, single crochet, half double crochet stitches and slip stitches worked in combination. Height can easily be adjusted by changing the number of chains in the foundation chain. Width of hat can easily be adjusted by adding or subtracting rows at the end. 4 sizes included - child, adult small, adult medium and adult large.
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.
