I made this brimmed slouchy hat last night. I wanted something that i could wear that would fit over my hair. I'm not completely happy with the brim,but I think I'll make a couple more and tweak the brim. but here it is.



It's so sad that I decided to make this hat instead of clean this mirror







here's what it looks like without the brim. I like it this way too.


♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Pattern is here!

If you have massive tons of hair (for example really long locked hair) you might want to add in multiples of row 10 and it will make the hat more oblong to fit your hair.

Ok, you can start with a joined chain or with a magic circle. I like the magic circle personally, but its up to you.

1.   Ch 3. 11dc in ring join (12 dc)

2.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. 2dc in each stitch around join (24)

3.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next stitch. 2dc next stitch* repeat from *to* around join (36)

4.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next stitch. 2dc next stitch* repeat from  *to* around join (48)

5.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 2 stitches. 2dc next stitch* repeat from *to* around join (60)

6.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 3 stitches. 2dc next stitch* repeat from around join (72)

7.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 4 stitches. 2dc next stitch* repeat from around join (84)

8.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 5 stitches. 2dc next stitch* repeat from around join (96)

9.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 5 stitches. 2dc next 6 stitches* repeat from around join (108)

10.   Ch 3. dc in next stitch and in each stitch around. Join

Decrease begins  here (I didnt count the number of stitches per row for these rows. keep in mind this fits my giant head, so you may need to add in a couple more or less decreases before you do the brim. I'd suggest trying it on after row 16 to see if you need to decrease more. you can do it two ways. #1 add in more decrease rows. #2 change the number of decreases in row 16. Ex. dc in fewer stitches before each decrease.)

11.   Ch 3. dc in next 10 ten stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 11 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. (Youll decrease about 8 times. Just dc in any extra stitches after the last decrease to finish the row) join

12.   Ch 3. dc in next 8 stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 9 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. join

13.   Ch 3. dc in next 5 stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 6 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. join

14.   Ch 3. dc in next 2 stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 3 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. join

15.   Ch 3. 1dc in next stitch and each stitch around.

16.   Ch3. dc in next 9 stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 10 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. join. fasten off.


Brim starts here! If you stop here itll look more like a giant snood/hairnet.  I double stranded the brim to make it stiffer. If you dont want to you can probably not fasten it off on row 16 and start the brim from there with a ch1. If you read ahead, you can see where I was just making up the brim as I went along. You can choose to use whatever stitches you want for the brim but I think the basic concepts still gonna work about the same. Next time Im gonna do all my dc rows before I start in on my sced rows. As is, I was just trying to make the brim, look visually how I wanted to. I had to go back and count afterwards. If/when I fine tune the brim, I'll come back and repost it.


1.   Join yarn in any stitch on the edge of hat. Slip stitch in same stitch. sc, hdc, dc in next 20 stitches (more if you want the brim to be wider) hdc,sc, slip stitch. Turn.

2.   ch1.slip stitch in previous sc. Sc in previous hdc. 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches. 1dc in each of the next 14 stitches. 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches. Hdc. Sc. Slip stitch. Turn. (slip stitch should end in 1st sc of row 1)

3.   ch1.slip stitch in previous sc. Sc in previous hdc. 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches. 1dc in each of the next 16 stitches. 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches. Hdc. Sc. Slip stitch. Turn. (slip stitch should end in 1st sc of row 2)

4.   ch1. sc in slip stitch and each stitch across ending in slip stitch. Turn.

5.   ch1. sc hdc dc across row. In last 2 stitches of row (hdc, sc) turn.

6.   ch1. sc across row.

7.   ch1. sc around entire hat (brim and all) fasten off and weave in the ends.

I love that, as always with your stuff.  What yarn did you use?

If you decide to post a tutorial I would love it (or a link to the pattern)

cute hat Tenille, way to go! I like this style- it reminds me of some that I've made from the Hip Hats and Cool Caps book. You crochet pretty quick, it seems like you always have some new projects to post.

I have no life. Maybe crochet is my life...Ok, not really, really I just hate to sit still and it keeps me from fidgeting. I'm a 29yr old fidgeter. That's why I make so much stuff. It's sad really. I have to be doing something so that I can sit still and that's the only reason, and as far as I know I don't have ADD or anything like that. I just always have to be doing more than one thing. Smiley Otherwise I can't concentrate and I get distracted. Ok, that kinda sounds like ADD. hmmmm................

 I Think the hat looks amazing. I am also ashamed to say that I am a bit of a yarn snob and stick almost religiously to animal fibers but I have been surprised at how awesome Red Heart worked in this pattern and how acrylic has more going for it than I thought. Again, it looks lovely (brim included!)

I tried this pattern today, and unfortunately my hat wound up looking all funky.  Instead of the body of the hat being round, it's all lumpy looking.  I included a picture, but I took it with my cell phone so it's a pretty awful shot.  I'm not sure how this got so botched, but I'm thinking maybe the gauge of the needle or the weight of the yarn?  I think I followed the pattern properly.  Any thoughts?

When I made the first one, I just winged it. If you can make a hat you can do this easy. Just pick a big hook and start out like your making a regular hat, just keep incresing until it's bigger than normal. It should pretty much lay in a giant flat circle until you stop the increases. When you start the 1dc in each around that'll make it loosely bowl shaped. and the decreases make it actually fit. Feel free to shoot me a pm if you have any questions.
