Grab this Slouchy Hat Knitting Pattern. Super easy beginner level. Knit with bulky yarn, so it knit’s up quickly! Great beginner knitting pattern!


I was trying to decide what hat I’d like to make this month and I’ve been trying to branch out and use different yarns, so I decided to create a pattern similar to my most popular hat knitting pattern, the Wisdom slouchy hat, which is knit with a super bulky yarn.


So, I decided to create this hat using a bulky yarn instead of a super bulky and I’m super happy with the results.


For starters, this yarn is the softest and warmest evah!


I’m all about instant gratification projects, hence why I always knit with super bulky yarn.


However… even though this took a little longer to knit, I absolutely love it!


So, I’m trying to embrace patience when knitting a project and enjoying the process and trying not to think about what I’m going to knit next. ;)}


Anyone with me on this?!


Let’s get on to knitting this thing. :)

Pattern, Knit in the Round:

Using US 10.5 {6.5mm} circular needles with a 16” {40cm} cable.

CO 64 STS, PM, join in the round.

Rounds 1-21: *K2, P2* approx. 5” {13cm} from the beginning

Switch to size US 11 needles:

Rounds 22-52: *K* approx. 7 1/2” {19cm} from the beginning


Note {Optional}:

When the stitches get too tight switch to a longer cable and knit using the magic loop method.


Decrease for the crown:

Round 53: *K6, K2TOG, PM*

Round 54: *K5, K2TOG, SM*

Round 55: *K4, K2TOG, SM*

Round 56: *K3, K2TOG, SM*

Round 57: *K2, K2TOG, SM*

Round 58: *K1, K2TOG, SM*

Round 59: *K2TOG, remove stitch marker*



Without binding-off, cut the yarn leaving a 10” {25cm} tail, pull it through the remaining STS, push through the top hole to the inside and then weave in the ends.



To block this hat I use a saucer. Like a teacup and saucer. ;) I put it inside the hat, so the bottom “swirl” is in the center of the saucer and the saucer is bulging outward, spritz it with some water, pat dry with a clean towel and let it dry overnight.



* – * – repeat between *

CO – cast-on {long-tail cast-on method}

DPNs – double pointed needles

K – knit stitches {K1 means to knit 1 stitch}

K2TOG – knit 2 stitches together

P – purl stitches {P2 means to purl 2 stitches}

PM – place stitch marker

SM – slip stitch marker

STS – stitches
