Free pattern – Jaden slouch beanie

See also

A basic beanie is sometimes called for, because as much as the designer in me wants to create and have fun with stitches, something basic can sometimes come out pretty amazing.

For this hat, I ended up doing half double crochet in a continuous round, in the back loop only. I wanted to create something for the men out there without any frills and I think I came close. The beauty of this hat is that it can be worn as a typical beanie, or when pushed slightly back, can be worn as a slouchy hat.

This hat requires only 2.5 hours of your time and less than a skein of your favorite worsted weight yarn. This is also a great stash buster.

Please do not post this pattern on your website or take it as your own. I ask that you instead link to my page, which will help with internet karma. Please note you can use this pattern for personal use and sell what you make. I only ask that you credit me as the pattern creator and link to this article. Thank you.
