Hi Everyone! I’m excited to share a new crochet tutorial with you, this fun and easy slouchy crochet beanie! This method is great for beginners, and as always I go nice and slow on the video for any level crocheter.
The Easy Slouchy Crochet Beanie!
Yarn of choice – I like a size 5 yarn (white beanie or you can go very chunky like this variegated one)
Hook that matches yarn
Thicker yarn hook set I like:
Smaller yarn hook set I like:
The Treble Stitch (UK: dtr):
treble stitch: yarn over 2 times, insert the hook, yarn over pull through, (4 loops on hook), yarn over pul through 2 loops, yarn over pull through 2 loops, yarn over pull through remaining 2 loops
In 2nd chain from hook, sc in every stitch all the way down.
ch 1 and turn
sc in each stich back loop only (5 stitches)
Repeat until band fits around your head – mine was 19 inches. This band has a lot of stretch.
slip stitch short ends together to make a circle
ch 1 and sc at the end of each of the sc rows all the way around
slip stitch to finish round
note: both beanies pictures are made using the same pattern, just different yarn.
tr (UK dtr) in the next stitch and in each stitch going all the way around.
slip stitch to the top of the first ch 4 to finish round
treble stitch in between each tr stitch from the previous round
slip stitch to top of initial ch 4
repeat this for 8-9 rows until desired height depending on yarn choice. Decrease as needed if you feel you want to bring it in.
slip stitch final round to the top of the previous ch 4. ch 1 and sc in each tr stitch all the way around.
slip stitch to finish out round, fasten off and leave a long tail.
Using a yarn needle weave the long tail back and forth. When you get back around to the beginning, pull on the tail to close up the opening.
From the inside of the hat, sew the opening closed and weave in the tail.
Add an optional pom pom to the top if desired.
