made: textured slouch beanie

It’s been a while since I made something just for me, for the sake of making something!

(and this has everything to do with the super secret project I’m currently working on – more on that soon!)

My friend Stephanie from A Bag Full Of Crochet (whom I’ve met last year) designed this awesome slouch hat a while ago, and since I got dreads and am insanely worried about burning my scalp in this heat, a slouch beanie was just the thing I needed! :)

Officially this is a reversible design, meaning you can wear it the right way and inside out, but since I was in a hurry I didn’t really sew in my ends that well, so my slouch beanie isn’t reversible ;)



I used six colours (out of necessity really; I somehow have run out of cotton yarn! I guess it had to happen some day ;)) for my slouch beanie. I just love all the different textures and stitches; it keeps this design interesting and really fun to work on! I finished this in one evening, and I used Drops Paris cotton yarn and a 5mm hook.

I went to my mom’s place the other day to have her take pictures of me wearing the hat, but then my baby sister showed up, and she’s a MUCH better model than me! So I took pictures of her wearing my hat instead ;)






It looks pretty good on her too huh? Seriously, that girl could wear a garbage bag on her head and she would still look awesome! Some people can get away with anything ;)

If you’d like to make this pattern yourself, head on over to Stephanie’s Ravelry store to grab it.

OR, if you leave a comment on this blog post, you might just win the pattern! :) (open till next week, to all readers!)

  22. I love patterns with lots of different stitches like this one. They are never boring to make.

  23. Whaouuu ! What a gorgeous “hat”, just like I love…enough crazy to wear, enough “crochet” style to please me, and great colors !! In other words, I love it and it really suits your little sister who is really nice with it ! Bravo ;-)

  24. What a great-looking hat! I love the textures obtained using different stitches and it makes the different-colored yarns really pop! It looks wonderful on your sister, but I bet it looks just as great on you!!

  25. What a great way to use up left over yarn and a great looking hat!!

  26. I think you would have looked equally as good in the hat as your sister. However I always choose to use my sisters or friends as my models too.

  27. Gorgeous beanie, I’d love to make one ready for winter. The pace my crochet is going at the moment if I start now I might be ready by November!!!

  30. I would lo rep to make this girl a friend that just finished up chemo. Thanks

  31. Love love love this! So cute and fun!

  32. The pattern is awesome! I really love the texture in it. I find that with a lot of slouch beanies, the patterns are very simply. They turn out great, but there isn’t a ton of visual interest with them, and my interest doesn’t get piqued and I don’t have the urge to make more than one. This beanie has all of it, the perfect slouch, the color play, and the wide array of texture! Beautiful piece <3

  33. So cute! Love it!

  34. This is so beautiful!!!! And yes, your model is beautiful :)

  35. Gorgeous hat! Great way to use your leftover yarn.
