Free Knitted Slouch Hat Pattern for Knifty Knitter

Slouch hat made on knifty knitterTo make this slouch hat knitting pattern, you’ll need:

Green circular loom and hook

Size 13 circular knitting needles

Bulky or chunky yarn of choice. I used the two mentioned above, one skein of each.

tapestry needle to weave in ends.

Instructions:

Using the green knifty knitter I created 8 inches of loomed work. To make the hat “slouchier” I wish I’d done 9 or 10 inches of loomed yarn. To make up


for the fact that the finished hat wasn’t as long as I wanted it to be, I crocheted an extra inch onto the brim. I think if you begin with 9-10 inches of loomed yarn, you’d only need a few rows of crochet in the brim.

Once I’d made my circular loomed part of the hat long enough, I took the stitches off the pegs, one at a time and transferred them to a size 13 circular knitting needle so I could decrease a couple of rows. The green knifty knitter creates a lot of bulk to tie into a tiny closure so at least a couple rows of decrease work well.

Decrease:

K2Tog, K5 and repeat to the end, knitting last 2 stitches.

Next row – K2Tog, K3 – Repeat to end of row.

Cut yarn with long tail and thread back through each stitch and pull tightly to close off end. Tie yarn tail and weave back into hat.

When you use a circular loom, your first few rows will curl up, creating a brim. For a slouch hat pattern, you want to get rid of that curling and create a flat edge by crocheting about an inch of edging onto the hat. I used simple single crochet on the first round and then double crochet for enough rounds to create an inch.

Tie off yarn and weave in ends.

I’ve included more photos of the slouch hat on circular loom in progress.

As you can see in the photo to the left, my crochet hat brim ended up being more than one inch because I wanted more “slouch” to my beret. Creating more rows on the knifty knitter to begin with would mean less crocheted edging.
