When I was making the hats and scarves for the homeless I ended up making not one, but two beanie hat patterns. This was the first, a VERY slouchy beanie! I have got all my hair tucked up in the bottom of the hat and anyone who knows me will tell you I have a LOT of hair!
You can get a better idea about the size of this hat by the silly pic I took when I was messing about!
Anyway, enough tomfoolery, here is the pattern! I used regular DK wool, it takes around 50g of wool and I used a 4mm hook.
The pattern is written using UK terms and hopefully the way I like to set out my patterns will be easy for everyone to follow. Any problems then just leave me a comment and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
DC = Double Crochet, INC = Increase, rnd = round, TR = Treble crochet, DEC = Decrease, numbers in brackets are the total number of stitches.
1) DC 5 in magic ring (5)
2) INC rnd (10)
3) INC rnd (20)
4) (TR, INC) rnd (30)
5) (TR 2, INC) rnd (40)
6) (TR 3, INC) rnd (50)
7) (TR 4, INC) rnd (60)
8) (TR 5, INC) rnd (70)
9) (TR 6, INC) rnd (80)
10) (TR 7, INC) rnd (90)
11 - 16) TR rnd (90)
17) (TR 7, DEC) rnd (80)
18) (TR 6, DEC) rnd, (70)
Slip stitch x 2 then finish off, weave in the loose end.
Enjoy! Again, if there are any problems let me know! I am also interested in how other people find reading patterns the way I set them out so give me some feedback please folks!
P.S. I am a big fat liar, I actually made three beanie patterns, one was just for me though!
