The brim of this slouchy beanie is made using back loop single crochet, which gives a textured band with some stretch to it.

The popcorn section is designed to be baggy and worn as a slouch style hat rather than fitted tightly to the head.

Two sizes are offered in the pattern, both for adults – small size has a band circumference of 44cm, large is 48cm (will stretch with wear). The larger size is perfect for avoiding hat hair. Stitch counts for the two sizes are shown as small/large throughout the pattern.

Materials

Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8 ply – 1 x 200g ball (using approx. 150g for the whole beanie). The samples for this pattern used ‘frost’ and ‘baby blossom’. This yarn is wonderfully soft, machine washable and best of all, Australian made.

Pattern
Brim

Using 3.5mm hook, ch 13.

Row 1: Blsc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining ch (12 blsc), ch 1, turn.

Row 2 – 98/104: Blsc in each stitch (12 blsc), ch 1, turn.

Row 99/105: The aim of this row is to join the band into a circle without sewing. Blsc, loosen the working loop and remove the hook. Insert hook into bl of first sc of Row 1, insert hook back into the working loop and pull through. Continue this joining technique for each stitch across, matching the joins with the next associated stitch (12 sc joins).

This results in a band that is 44/48 cm when slack. It will stretch with wear.

From this point on, stitches will be worked along the long length of the ribbed band in complete circles.

Ch 1, 1 sc into each blsc row of the ribbed band, sl st into the first sc to join. (99/105 sc)
