Crochet Slouchy Beanie (Free Pattern and Video Tutorial)

Here’s a beginner friendly crochet slouchy beanie project to close out the winter (hopefully soon). It’s a simple, easy going project for beginners.

I’ve been on a tangent of making my own pom poms, so this crochet slouchy beanie was a perfect match to play around with them.

The pom pom shown is a snow leopard print. I have a limited quantity of these in various sizes listed on my Etsy shop if anyone is interested, as well as the printable PDF version of this pattern here.

You could also make use of some of your left over yarn and make your own pom pom with this tutorial here.

Hope you enjoy, let me know if you have any questions.

Crochet Slouchy Beanie Pattern

Row 1 ( ws ) : ch 31, 1 hdc into second ch from hook and each ch st across( I like to insert my hook into the little bump on the back of the ch st ). Total of 30 st

Row 2 ( rs ) : Turn, ch 1 ( do not count as a st ), 1 hdc into first front loop and each front loop across. Total of 30 st

Row 3 – 34 rep row 2 *The end of row 34 cut the yarn leave about a 20″ tail for sewing the hat together

Join the hat together
Insert the needle into the front loop of row 34 and into both loops of row one. Rep till the end
After you sew the hat together, you’re going to use the remaining tail to close the top of the hat. To close the hat, insert the needle through the top loops of each V shape as shown in the photo, rep around.
