The Any Season Slouchy Hat Free Pattern!


Last spring I wanted to make a lightweight hat that I could wear during the spring and summer, but I think the hat I came up with is great for all seasons!
I love slouchy berets and I love Red Heart's Boutique Unforgettable Yarn so I used it to make this hat. It's a very comfotable and soft hat that I love and I want to share the free pattern with ya'll.

The Any Season Slouchy Hat

Size

Adult small (fits a 22 inch head)


Materials

H hook (5.0 mm )
Scissors
Darning needle
Measuring Tape 


Abbreviations, Definitions, and Tips

This pattern is worked in the round.

How to start: I start by making a loose slip knot, chain 3 and then work the first round of double crochets into the slip knot. Pull the tail end to close the hole tight. (You do not have to start with this method. You can use a magic ring or any other method that you choose.)

How to start each round: Chain 2 and put the first stitch into the same stitch as the chain 2. The chain 2 does not count as a double crochet.

How to end each round: After you make the last stitch of the round, slip stitch to the first stitch of the round..

Ch: chain

sc: single crochet

dc: double crochet

2dc: double crochet increase (Put 2 double crochets into the same stitch.)

dc2tog: double crochet decrease (Yarn over the hook and insert the hook into the stitch, yarn over and pull the hook through the stitch. Yarn over and pull the hook through the first 2 loops on the hook.  Yarn over and insert the hook into the next stitch. Yarn over and pull the hook through the stitch. Yarn over and pull the hook through the first 2 loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull the hook through all 3 loops on the hook.)

hdc: half double crochet

hdc or sc in the 3rd loop: Video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-gFiKM5b4w
