I really love slouch hats..I do. 🙂
This is an easy one to whip up, and I plan on making a couple more like it! Some for baby girl too. I think she needs one in a nice yellow color..
I’m going to add a flower to mine, I’m just lazy and haven’t sewn it on yet. Pics are lousy until then too, as I finished this up at night.
WW yarn-I used red heart in ‘carrot’ if you’re wondering.
Working in a spiral, so mark beginning of rounds if you’d like. No joining, just keep on keepin on!
10 dc into magic loop-pull tight to close.
Round 1: 2 dc in each st. 20 sts
Round 2: [1 dc in first st, 2 dc in next st] around. 30 sts
Round 3: [1 dc in first 2 sts, 2 dc in next st] around. 40 sts
Round 4: [1 dc in first 3 sts, 2 dc in next st] around. 50 sts
Round 5: [1 dc in first 9 sts, 2 dc in next st] around. 55 sts
Work even on these stitches until length desired. My hat’s pretty slouchy.. I think I did 6 rows. Yes, I did. Sorry, had to count.
Then switch to F hook, sl st in next st, and then work some ribbing around hat!
Ch 7, turn, hdc in 3rd st from hook and each down, sl st in next 2 sts on hat.
Row 1: Turn, skip 2 sl sts and hdc in back loop only.
Row 2: ch 2, turn and hdc in back loop only back down, sl st in next 2 sts along hat.
Repeat these 2 rows around hat, then either sl st sides together or sew together. (see my circe cardi pattern for more on ribbing worked this way)
The flower is a dark turquoise blue..Roxy may get a peace sign on hers. Or a flower. not sure yet..
