Slouchy Summer Hat

A comfortable cotton slouch hat for warm summer days.


This pattern uses US crochet terms.  If you have any questions, leave a comment and I will do my best to help you out.

This project was made with Sugar 'n Cream worsted weight cotton yarn in color Ecru and a size H crochet hook.  This hat can easily be adapted to smaller or larger sizes, it can be made slouchier or more form fitting, however you would like.  The size I made uses about 3 ounces of yarn.





Summer Slouchy Hat

Foundation: Ch 8, sl st in 8th ch from hook to form a ring

Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as dc though out), 19 dc into the ring, sl st into top of the beginning ch 3 to join
Round 2: Ch 6 (counts as beginning dc + ch 3), *skip a st, dc in next st, ch 3, repeat from * around, sl st into 3rd ch of the beginning ch 6 to join.
Round 3: Ch 3, dc in the same space, ch 3, skip 3 ch, *2 dc in the next dc, ch 3, skip 3 ch , repeat from * around, sl st into beginning ch 3 to join.
Round 4: Ch 3, 2 dc in next dc, ch 3, skip 3 ch, *dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, ch 3, skip 3 ch, repeat from * around, sl st into beginning ch 3 to join.
Round 5: Ch 3, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc, ch 3, skip 3 ch, *dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc, ch 3, skip 3 ch, repeat from * around, sl st in top of beginning ch 3 to join.
Round 6: Ch 3, 2 dc in next dc, dc in the next 2 dc, ch 3, skip 3 ch, *dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next 2 dc, repeat from * around, sl st in top of beginning ch 3 to join.

(if you would like a larger or slouchier hat, continue adding rounds, increase by 1 extra dc in each solid section for each additional row. Once the round is as large as you like, add 10 or more rows without increasing for the sides.)

Sides: Ch 3, *dc in each dc of the solid section, ch 3, skip 3 ch, repeat from * around, sl st in top of beginning ch 3 to join. Repeat this round 9 or more times until the hat is as long as you like.

Band: Ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st to ch 1 to join. Repeat this row of sc two or more times to make the band as wide as you like. If you made the hat larger you may want to make a wider band, and you may want to decrease by sc2tog evenly around so that the band fit your head without being too large.

Fasten off, weave in ends.
