Quick Gift Slouch Hat (12 Weeks of Gifting Series), Free Crochet Pattern + Video


The Quick Gift Slouch Hat is a fun little project that makes a lovely and very cozy gift.  It also pairs beautifully with a scarf, mittens and lots more!


This project is part of the 12 Weeks of Gifting Series!  Each week from NOW to the end of December, I'll be sharing a new pattern for something that is super easy and super quick to whip up.  We'll be using the same yarn and same hook size for every single project, just switching up the colors a bit.  Many of these projects can be made in just one sitting too!

With the holiday season fast approaching, sometimes it's hard to squeeze in the time needed to make handmade gifts for everyone on your list!  No worries, our 12 Weeks of Gifting Series to the rescue!  Click the link below for the full directory of projects:

  7. Love this design, can't wait to get started. How can I make the ribbing a different color? Would it be Rd 5 to change yarn and then alternate before decreasing?

  9. Hey! Nice pattern, easy to follow!
    One thing though, when i got tk the decrease i found it very, gapped. I often find rapid decrease to look this way, and next time around ill try the pattern backwards to do an increase on the crown which seems smoother. Also i suck at bpdc on the first stitch of a new row, any tips to make it less bumpy?
