SPRING SLOUCHY CROCHET BEANIE – Pattern starts here:
[Making the band]
Row 1: Working in back bar of foundation and starting in the 2nd ch from your hook, sc across, turn; (5)
Row 2: ch 1, working in back loop only, sc in each st across, turn; (5)
Repeat Row 2 until band is approximately 17(18, 19, 20, 21) inches – ending with an even number of rows.
Fold band in half so that the starting and ending edges are touching. Line up you stitches. Ch 1, and slip stitch the outer loops of both layers together to form hat band.
Flip band right side out so that seem is now on the inside.
Round 1: Ch 1, make 1 sc into the side of each band row, ending with an even number of stitches. Do not join. Use tail and hat band seam to keep track of your round start/finish.
(Example: I made a Womens Large, and ended up with 94 rows for my band, and 94 stitches total for Round 1.)
Round 2: hdc into the 1st st, ch 1, sk a st, *hdc into next st, ch 1, sk a st; repeat from * around; do not join at end of round.
Round 3: hdc into hdc from prev row, ch 1, *hdc into next hdc from prev row, ch 1; repeat from * around; do not join at end of round.
Repeat Round 3 until until piece measures 7(8, 9, 9, 10) inches.
Fasten off leaving long tail that is 1 – 2 arm’s lengths long.
[Cinching the hat closed]
Thread a yarn needle with tail. Whip stitch into each ch space along the top row, working the needle from inside the hat out. Work all the way around the top row until you reach back around to the beginning.
VERY gently and CAREFULLY, pull on your tail to cinch the hat closed. You will not be able to completely close the top of your hat with cinching. Once hat is cinched as much as possible, use yarn needle to stitch the remaining hole closed.
Knot to secure on the inside of your hat.
Round 1: With hat facing right side out, attach yarn to the bottom of your hat band along the seam. Work 1 sc into the side of each row of your starting hat band. Work in sc evenly around. Do not join.
Round 2: sl st into ea st around; join end of round by placing a sl st into 1st sl st of round.
[Optional – add a pom pom]
Attach a pom pom if you wish! (I made a pom pom with this Pom Pom maker and used the 2.5″.)
Weave in ends.
