Chunk Slouch

I had a small skein of super chunk yarn staring me down today…so I whipped up this lil slouch hat in about 20 min. Hooray for chunk yarn!

Chunk Slouch Hat

P/Q Hook

L Hook

Super Chunk Yarn-I used about a skein of Lion Brand Hometown

6 dc into magic loop, join to first dc.

Round 1: Ch 2, dc in same st as join, 2 dc in each st around. Join to ch 2. 12 sts

Round 2: Ch 2, [2 dc in next st, dc in next st] around. 18 sts

Round 3: Ch 2, dc in next st, [2 dc in next st, dc in next 2 sts] around. 24 sts

Round 4: Ch 2, dc in next 2 sts, [2 dc in next st, dc in next 3 sts] around. 30 sts

Round 5: Ch 2, dc around. 30 sts

Round 6: Switch to L hook, ch 1, sc in back loops only around.

Round 7: Ch 1, sc in back humps around. See pics below.

Looking at brim. Working in the back humps causes this sideways ‘stocknette’ pattern to emerge.

When you turn your work to look at the back, there is that ‘bump’ sitting behind the 2 loops you normally work into.

Stick your hook into this bump. This is where you place your sc sts to get that look on the brim.

Work your sc in each bump around. See? Not too hard. Just different

Round 8: Ch 1, sc in back humps around.

Fasten off, weave in ends.

  1. What did I do wrong? Not only did mine come out kind of… “cone” shaped, more like a santa hat, but it also fit my 6 year old daughter. Certainly not me. Used chunky yarn, followed instructions to a T. Even unraveled it all and started over… Ever had either of those issues?

    • Mine is cone-shaped and very tight as well. It is because it doesn’t have enough rows in-between the increased stitch for bigger heads. I made mine into a slouch and it is super tight with a band on it. Before I put the banding on it, it was tight anyway. You need to add a row of 18 and 24 in between your increases, and if you’re still having the issue of it being too small, add another of the 12 stitches. The Lion Brand Hometown yarn being super chunky, for me seems thicker than other “super chunky” yarns, because I used a different brand super chunky and had enough to make 15 rounds, but it had the cone shape but I’m not messing with taking it apart. I needed more stitches and more rows in between the increased stitches.
