I am by no means an expert at crochet but I can follow a pattern, and luckily for me, there are many patterns available online. After an extensive search to find just the right one, I began making up the Super Slouch Hat by Crazy Sock Crochet.
I used one skein of Vanna’s Choice worsted weight yarn, but you may need a second skein if you want to add more rows for extra ‘slouch’. For an adult hat, you’ll need 3 crochet hooks in various sizes: M (9.0mm), K (6.5mm) and J (6.0mm).
This hat starts with a magic loop, also known as an adjustable ring, and because the hat is crocheted in a round (a continuous spiral), it is useful to have a stitch marker to mark your first stitch on each round.
The pattern is clearly written and easy to follow. All hook changes are marked and suggestions are given about where to add extra rows if desired. I made this hat in just a couple of hours.
Finally, I always like to add a small piece of ribbon to the brim of my handmade hats as it gives a small personal touch to the finished item.
