Hypnotic Heart Slouch Hat - Free Crochet Pattern

This soft and light slouchy crochet hat was designed to match the Hypnotic Heart Crochet Cowl
You can choose to make the hat in the same 3 colors used for the cowl, or you can make a stylish slouch in one color only. Using 2 colors, the pattern stitch would look different, but also beautiful.
Here is the 3 color version:

Hypnotic Heart Slouch Hat - Free Crochet Pattern



I love the one solid color version also!

Here is a sneak peek of the 2 color version:



Materials:
- 4 mm crochet hook (used for the ribbed cuff)
- 4.5 mm crochet hook
- Red Heart Shimmer Yarn in 3 colors (or only 1 color if you choose to make the version without color changes)
- tapestry needle to sew in the ends
- scissors

Gauge: Using a 4.5 mm crochet hook, 1 pattern repeat= 5 cm

Hat Size: one size will fit all women.

Finished Dimensions:
The ribbed cuff measures unstretched 
50 cm around, stretching till 58 cm and it is 4 cm tall.
Slouch width: 62 cm
Total height: 25 cm (if you want a longer slouch, make more rounds before decreasing for the top of the hat) 


 
  Stitches, terms (US) and abbreviations:
- ch: chain
- sc: single crochet
- hdc: half double crochet
- dc: double crochet
- dc dec2tog: double crochet decrease two together
- sk: skip
- sl st : slip stitch
- shell: (2dc, 1ch, 2dc) into same stitch
- V-st: V stitch= (1dc, 1ch, 1dc) into same stitch
- beg: beginning

NotesThe slouch hat is started at the cuff, working rows of sc blo back and fort. Folding the piece in half you will slip stitch the short rows together to form a tube. After this, you'll start working in rounds, from the edge of the ribbed cuff.
Color change for the version with 3 colors:
 At the end of each round, join into round with a slip stitch made with the new color yarn
Continue the next round with the new color. 
Alternate the 3 colors each round, carrying the yarn not in use from round to round, without cutting it!

See the STEP BY STEP PICTURE TUTORIAL FOR THE PATTERN STITCH in The Hypnotic Heart Crochet Cowl Pattern. 




Pattern: 
(For the 3 color version, here black, white and blue yarn):
1) The cuff, worked in rows (see the photo collage below)
With black yarn and a 4 mm crochet hook start with 9 ch.
Row 1: 1sc into back loop of the 2nd ch from hook and 1sc blo in each chain across. Chain 1, turn. (8 st)

Row 2-64: 1sc blo in each st across. Chain 1, turn. (8 st)

Fold the piece in half to form a tube. Working through both loops of the stitches of each side, slip stitch across. (8 st)
 Because the joining looks better on the wrong side, turn the cuff inside out and continue working. The wrong side will be from now on the right side.
The cuff of the purple hat (better to see, as with black yarn)
2) Working in rounds around the edge of the cuff:
Switch to hook size 4.5 mm! 
Round 1: Continue with black yarn, ch1, work 64 sc evenly spaced around one edge of the ribbed cuff; that means 1st in each ridge and 1st in each back ridge of the cuff. Changing to blue, join with sl st into first sc. (64 st)

Round 2: Continue with blue, ch3 (count as the first dc), 1dc in same st, *1dc in next st, 2dc in next st *, repeat around from *to *, ending with 1dc in last st, with white join with sl st into top of beg ch3. (96 sts)
