Wildwood Slouchy Beanie | Free Crochet Pattern | The Unraveled MItten

Today I have another installment of the Wildwood Collection. So far we have the cowl and chunky hat and today I am bringing you the Wildwood Slouchy Beanie.

This hat is worked in rounds from the bottom up using a worsted weight yarn. I chose Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in the color rust so it would complement my stripey cowl. I also added a couple cute wooden heart buttons from my stash to the brim and finished it off with  a yarn pom-pom. I think one of those trendy faux fur poms would look really awesome too.

I have had alot of fun putting this collection together for you and I hope you have been enjoying these patterns.

Wildwood Slouchy Beanie | Free Crochet Pattern | The Unraveled Mitten


  • Less than 1 skein of Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn ( 3.5 oz/170 yds 100% acrylic) or similar #4 worsted weight yarn
  • 8mm/L crochet hook (I like this one.)
  • Needle to weave in ends
  • Scissors
  • Pom-pom maker or Faux Fur Pom: optional
  • Buttons

Gauge and Sizing

  • Gauge: 5 stitches x 4 rows = 2 inches in the same pattern as the body of the hat
  • Finished Hat Measures: 9.5 in wide x 10 in tall


  • I use US Terminology
  • Ch(s): chain(s)
  • Dc: double crochet
  • Sc: single crochet
  • Sl st: slip stitch


  • If you would like to make this bigger or smaller, just crochet a starting chain with an odd number.
  • Ch 1 does not count as a stitch


Rnd 1: Ch 47, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Join to 1st sc using a sl st, taking care not to twist row. Use the tail from beginning chains to join the bottom

Rnd 2-4: Ch 1, sc in same st as ch 1 and in each stitch around. Join to 1st sc with a sl st.

Rnd 5-22: Ch 1, (sc, dc) in same st as ch 1.  *Skip 1 st, (sc, dc) in next. Repeat from * around. Skip last st. Join to 1st sc with sl st.

On last round finish off being sure to leave a long tail. Thread tail in tapestry needle and weave in and out through the stitches around the top of the hat. Pull tail to cinch closed. Weave in ends.

If desired add a yarn or faux fur pom-pom.

  1. Love the pattern so far. I’ll be turning mine so the inside will be the outside-has more texture when I do it this way, and that first chain row is hidden. Thank you so much. Lovely pattern

    1. Just finished this hat. I used woolease regular worsted yarn. The hat is beautiful and the fit around the band is perfect.

  2. I’ve made several of these hats as they are so easy , and your instructions so clear. Good Job ! I’ve crocheted since I was 11 ~ that’s 66 years . Over the years with moves I’ve downscaled or lost crochet stitch or pattern books . How wonderful to have it all on my i pad.
