Color Tour Slouchy Hat: Free Crochet Pattern

Spread the love

On a whim a couple years ago I bought a bunch of Lion Brand Homespun yarn (hey, it was a good sale!). I had no real plan for it but the colors were just too pretty to pass up. Fast forward to present day… that yarn is STILL sitting in my stash. Why? Because I didn’t realize what a pain it can be to work with. However, I was determined to make something of it. Enter, this hat.

The ribbed band is made from single crochets in the back loop. This can be a little challenging at first but I find it easier to feel for the next stitch vs only relying on seeing where to put my hook. The body is made up of the half double crochet V-stitch, it isn’t as lacy as the more traditional v-stitch made from double crochets which makes for a really warm and cozy hat. The half double v-stitch is made by crocheting in a space vs in a stitch. This is really the key to working with this particular yarn, no guessing where to put your next stitches.
