Velvet 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!
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.
There are two basic types of simple crochet hat construction: the close-fitting beanie and the loose-fitting slouch hat. This free crochet pattern provides instructions for making the latter in any size. It closes with a drawstring, which means that even if you're guage is slightly off, the hat should fit. Adorn it with a button-centered flower or leave that part off if you want a simpler design.
