Winter / Fall Seasoned Crochet Tasseled Slouchy Bonnet Hat Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Tasseled Slouchy Bonnet Hat

Ever confused while naming your product? I was. It took me 3-4 attempts to finally come up with the name – Tasseled Slouchy Bonnet Hat.

At first, I decided to name it as Women’s Pixie hat. Then I renamed to Women’s Pixie Slouchy Hat because of the slouchy effect. Later, it was rechristened as Women’s Pixie Bonnet Hat but then, it is neither a pixie hat nor a bonnet hat. It is a combination of the two with a slouchy effect at the base.

Unlike pixie hat with the straight split at the base, I gave it a round base with a split in the end. It resembles more closely to a Slouchy Bonnet than a Slouchy Pixie. Thus the name.

Process:

I was looking for Pixie hat patterns and I stumbled upon Ganymede Hat by Sheila Toy Stromberg.  This was the exact pattern that I was visualizing in my head. A Pixie hat but without pointy end with bonnet split in the back. Her Ganymede Hat pattern helped me to understand the process. Her Facebook page is creative and welcoming to follow too.

The customer shared a specific colour and design of the pixie hat that she wanted. Thus, I followed the above pattern up to Row 17 and then created a different edging.

Since I used 6mm crochet hook, I added one more row of extension with a final count of 64 DC. 

Edging:-

R 18: Ch 3, *Puff Stitch¹, skip the next stitch, repeat from * till the end of the row. Complete the row with DC  on 3rd ch of the last row, turn.

R 19 – R 20: repeat R 18.

R 21: Finish the hat with one round Single Crochet (SC) around covering the base of the split.

[1 – Puff Stitch – Yarn over, insert the hook in the defined stitch, draw up a loop  (a total of three loops on the hook), yarn over and insert the hook in the same stitch and draw up a loop (a total of 5 loops on the hook). Yarn over and draw through first 4 loops on the hook, yarn over and draw through the last 3 loops on the hook.]

Finishing:-

Continue making ties for pixie hat and add tassels. The ties length is 5″, which I felt shorter than I anticipated. Thus I added tassels to give a more fuller look.

DIY Yarn Tassels is a great link to follow for first timers.

Caution Section:-

  1. The selection of the yarn is important. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn and the chosen crochet hook determines the design.
  2. Also, your technique impacts the smoothness or finished look. Everyone has different technique ranging from tight stitching style to medium to loose stitching styles.
  3. In case, you are unable to get the required chosen coloured yarn of same thickness, you can change the crochet hook and your technique as you go around, to get the seamless look. For me, I chose crochet hook larger than recommended one to give a free flowing and open stitch.
  4. Since the number of rows alters due to different yarn sizes and crochet hooks, it is best to total up the number of rows required to make 1″. Based on this calculation, the position of the edge can be set.
  5. The positioning of the edging size along with the knowledge of the gauge will reduce the rework.

 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 9″
  • Circumference: 20″-22″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels or crab stitch edging to give a different touch.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Winter /Fall Seasoned Crochet Bosnian Long Beanie for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Crochet Bosnian Long Beanie

Close-knit beanies are the best option to stay warm during cold and chilly winters. In crochet, one can get the same effect using a Slip Stitch. Also, known as Bosnian stitch or Shepherd’s Knitting in English. In the Norwegian, it is pjoning, and in Swedish, it’s krokvirkning, smygmaskvirkning, and bosnisk virkning. 

While there is always a standard crochet hook to be used with specific yarn thickness, we can create various designs just by experimenting with the crochet hooks. For this design, in particular, it is usually recommended to use thicker yarn and match it with bigger crochet hooks for making a loose stitch where there is more space between the wool threads making the overall fabric more stretchable.

Also, if you change the entry point,  in other words, where you insert the hook; from the front, in the back loop or vice versa, you can get different results and be amazed. You can consult  A Basic Guide to Bosnian Crochet blog if you are doing an in-depth research.

Process:

Monk Wolles & Beanies is my favourite mentor. Aleksandra’s work is impeccable. Starting from the choice of colours to the creation to the final look, they attract everyone from crocheters to buyers. After working on her Hazelnut Beanie and  Stripes Beanie, I jumped to make  Long Beanie Bosnian Crochet.

Here, I wanted to make stretchy but close-knit, long but non-ribbed beanie. The beanie will resemble close to knit beanies and will provide the same warmth, durability, softness, and density. It will be long enough to cover your head and ears properly.

Remember to achieve more stretchiness the recommended crochet hook might not be the correct choice. Choose a larger hook than the suggested one.

One more point – your strength and style do matter. I tend to make a tighter stitch most of the time, thus I prefer a larger hook. If the crochet stitches you make is looser than you can go for a recommended hook or the hook suggested in the patterns.

Caution Section:-

  1. Unless your technique is loose stitching style, I will suggest using bigger crochet hook than the recommended on for more stretchiness.
  2. Slip stitch should be looser since we are working on the back loop to create the elasticity.
  3. Measure your progress to avoid rework. For e.g. if 1st batch gives 4″ width, then to get 20″ you need to repeat the same batch 4 more times. a total of 5 times. 
  4. Similarly, with the height of hat, it can be altered too. The focus should be on noting down all the modifications while creating the 1st batch. This will make the process smoother.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 9.5″
  • Circumference: 23″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Denim Bosnian Striped Beanie for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Denim Bosnian Striped Beanie

I loved the Hazelnut Bosnian Beanie – Knot My Designs and decided to make one for myself. I admit that I follow Monk Wolle & Beanies religiously. Even though her videos are created in German, I followed her stitches. I love Aleksandras’ creations. All her merchandises are in simple patterns but the choice of colours make them look so attractive, contemporary and rich.

What can I say “Love has no Language”!!!

I simply fell in love with Striped Beanie pattern. The video instructions are in German, though. The process is similar to the Hazelnut Beanie – English. The change of colours can be a bit tricky, though.

Process:

Below, I am focusing only on the change of the colour. For the rest, you can follow the Hazelnut Beanie – Knot My Designs to complete the beanie.

Striped Colored Part:-

Pointers:-

  1. Either you can use both the ends of the wool or buy 2 balls of wool of the same colour.
  2. Make sure you check each sections dimensions as detailed in Hazelnut Bosnian Beanie – Knot My Designs.
  3. The count increases or decreases based on the gauge of the wool, crochet hook used and your style. So, the re-checking again and again at the 1st part is extremely important.

For me, I am using 2-ply yarn. The recommended crochet hook is 4mm but I chose 5mm. Since I tend to move towards tighter stitch, I preferred bigger crochet hook to give the stretchable feel.

Pattern:-

  1. Chain 10 with charcoal grey, chain 3 in cream, chain 3 in blue, chain 21 in cream using 4 balls of wool.
  2. Working on Back loop only, Slip stitch across.
    1. 20 counts in cream.
    2. Bring the cream wool strand in front and join blue yarn.
    3. Continue 4 counts in blue.
    4. Bring the blue wool strand in front and join cream yarn.
    5. Continue 4 counts in cream.
    6. Bring the cream wool strand in front and join grey colour.
    7. Continue 10 counts in grey, ch 1.
  3. Turn the work and 9 counts in grey. Bring the strand to the front and continue with Cream yarn. Continue the process.

I increased the count to 11 chains in blue, 4 chains in cream. 4 chains in blue, 31 chains in cream to obtain 9″ height of the beanie.

Remember to achieve more stretchiness the recommended crochet hook might not be the correct choice. Choose a larger hook than the suggested one.

One more point – your strength and style do matter. I tend to make a tighter stitch most of the time, thus I prefer a larger hook. If the crochet stitches you make is looser than you can go for the recommended hook or the hook suggested in the patterns.

Caution Section:-

Tips to remember when working on this pattern.

  1. If you do not have loose stitching technique like me, then it is better to use a larger crochet hook than the recommended one. Like the recommended one is 4mm but I used 5mm to get the stretchy feel.
  2.  The beanie is made of the sections. So, it is best if we measure and note all the changes for the first section. For e.g. if the 1st section gives 4″ then to get 20″ there will be 4 more sections. 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 9.5″
  • Circumference: 23″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Fall/Spring Season Crochet Black Slouch Beanie Free Pattern for an adult woman - Knot My Designs

Black Slouch Beanie

Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus and both landed on the planet Earth to create a new whole world!

Fashion was completely different for both men and women; and both the styles fused together to form a 3rd gender in fashion, Uni-sex. This stood for commonality in the apparel like trousers, shirts, tees, beanies, caps, scarves, blazer, tuxedo. Some link this fusion of styles with equality and same status for both.

For all these years, though feminine couture has held the fashion empire high, the masculine trends are slowly catching up.

I created a Black Slouch Beanie for the female customer where I decided to use men’s slouch beanie as my base design idea.

Process:

The process is simple. It is series of Double Crochet Stitch (DC) and few Front Post Double Crochet Stitch (FPDC), and Back Post Double Crochet Stitch (BPDC). The beanie contains 2 parts:

  1. Basic Beanie
  2. Additional Brim/Edge

Basic Beanie:-

Starting with a magic circle, make a basic beanie of DC stitches. The beanie height measures 9″.

Additional Brim/Edge:-

For creating an edge, I have used FPDC and BPDC respectively and continued following the stitches for 2-3 rows until the edge measures 1″.

Total Slouch Beanie measures 10″.

Note: You can play around and alter the sizes as per your preference. The brim size can easily be extended to 2″ or increase/decrease basic beanie to get you desired slouchy effect. 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 9″-10″
  • Circumference: 21″-22″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the color with the edging or the base color. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Blue Backpost Slouch Beanie Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Blue BackPost Slouch Beanie

In the previous blog posts, I have been talking about gender-based fashion – feminine, masculine and unisex. But fashion is not only about “Shrink and Pink”, “Cool Blue Men”, Confused Identity Unisex, it is so much more. Fashion is change. As change is the only inevitable constant, same is with the fashion. It survives, breaths and brings joy when it challenges thoughts, outbreaks the defined set patterns and innovates new style.

So what is Fashion for you?

“To some, fashion is an art form. To others, it is almost like a religion. For most people, though, fashion is a method of utilising clothing, accessories, and grooming to show or hide something about yourself. Fashion can be an extension of your personality, allowing you to introduce parts of your personality to the world without saying a word. Conversely, the way you dress can also conceal parts of your personality or allow you to play a role: Clothing can be a costume, a uniform or a proclamation of independence. In 2016, fashion is whatever you want it to be. ” ( as described in about style).

Following the mantra of defining oneself through fashion, I selected a pattern, which will give a casual yet bold look to the customer who is both mellow and bold in nature.

Process:

The process is series of Double Crochet Stitch (DC) and Back Post Double Crochet stitch (BPDC). The beanie can be divided into 2 parts -> base and body.

Base:-

Start with a magic circle, ch2 and make 12 DC. Continue increasing by 12 for 6-7 rows and join at ch 2 of every row. To give a more slouchy look I made 84 DC in the last row of the base.

Remember: it should depend on the yarn thickness and recommended crochet hook. 

Body:-

1: ch 2, BPDC on 84DC each, join in the 1st BPDC.

2: ch 2, DC on each 84 BPDC. join in the 1st DC.

repeat 1 and 2 till you get the desired length. You can end the brim/edge with one row of Single Crochet or Slip stitch.

Measurement: circumference = 22″ , height = 10″.

Caution Section:-

  • FPDC and BPDC required a bigger crochet hook or loose stitching technique to get a flowy basketweave pattern.
  • Depending on the texture of the yarn, you can either choose a larger crochet hook other than recommended one or you can loosely stitch FPDC and BPDC.
  • For edging the last row, you can change the crochet hook to a smaller size to give a tighter set.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 10″
  • Circumference: 22″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Christy Moss Slouch Hat for Christmas for an adult woman - Knot My Designs

Christy Moss Slouch Hat

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Silent night, holy night,
Bethlehem sleeps, yet what light,
Floats around the heavenly pair;
Songs of angels fill the air.
Strains of heavenly peace.

In continuation of our conversation around traditions and customs of Christmas, this time, I am talking about Christmas Carols.

Carols meant singing and dancing and ultimately enjoying. Earlier people followed it throughout the year, but slowly this trend was lost with time and carols got more associated with Christmas. You might have heard about singing pagan songs, Angels Hymn that defined singing Christmas Carols for the generations. Later in 1600’s, the carol singing started gaining popularity with orchestras and choirs. They composed new songs and till today people follow it religiously at every home on the Christmas Eve.

As promised, I decided to make a slouch hat for an adult woman for Christmas. I have already shared Santa Claus Hat for men, Cherry Wherry Slouch Hat for an adult woman. Time to celebrate this Christmas in style with the classic red and white Crochet Christy Moss slouchy hat for women. Bring style, season n comfort together.

Process:

I liked MeladorasCreations – Moss Stitch Slouch Hat pattern for any female adult. You can wear it casually while travelling for work too. I modified it as I was looking for a Christmasy look or Christmasy effect on the hat. I avoided pom-pom to give it more subtle look. But then I did more than a few modifications.

Crochet Cherry Wherry Slouch Santa Hat Free Pattern for an adult woman for Christmas - kNot mY deSigns

Cherry Wherry Slouch Santa Hat

When any kid thinks of Christmas, he thinks of Santa Claus and gifts.There are conflicting stories regarding the origin of Santa’s Costume- the Red robe with white fur border was designed by Coca Cola company.

But why Christmas explains that it was Thomas Nast from Harper’s Weekly Magazine illustration, who designed the costume. “On January 1st, 1881, Harper’s Weekly published Nast’s most famous image of Santa, complete with a big red belly, an arm full of toys and smoking a pipe!” 

In continuation to making presents for my family on the auspicious occasion of Christmas, I decided to treat myself with a white-red colour combination hat. Initially, I thought to make a simple pom-pom Santa-Claus Hat. But then I changed my mind and decided to give it a twist. I can say this is my own pattern. It is a simple easy pattern that anyone can try making for themselves. It can be made of any colour combination you like. You can add either a crochet flower or pom-pom or both as an embellishment. I gave a slouchy effect with a broader edge which can be folded or unfolded and can be used as 2 different hat styles. One you can show-off as a slouchy beanie and another one you can fold around the brim to use as a simple beanie.

Process:

Ribbed Band:-

With white yarn, Chain 16. Back Loop Single crochet for 15 chains. Continue until the band reaches the 22-23″ (i.e. 72 rows). Join the ends. Run one round of single crochet at each single crochet edge of the band with the same yarn. Do not cut the yarn. Attach red yarn and start working on the base.

Note: The ribbing stretches by 2″-4″ depends on the crochet hook and yarn and your style.

Base:-

Double Crochet On every single crochet (72). Repeat this in every row till the hat is 3-4″ or repeat up till 10 rows. Start decreasing 6 stitches evenly till the end round contains 12 DC. This means that

1: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 5th and 6th DC in the row. Total DC left = 60.

2: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 4th and 5th DC in the row. Total DC left = 48.

3: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 3rd and 4th DC in the row. Total DC left = 36.

4: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 2nd and 3rd DC in the row. Total DC left = 24.

5: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 1st and 2nd DC in the row. Total DC left = 12. Sew the ends.

Caution Section:-

  1. The ribbed band size depends on the target age as the circumference is made after sewing the rectangular band.
  2. Also, depending on the yarn thickness and elasticity, and crochet hook the ribbed band will stretch between 1″-3″. 
  3. Make sure the number of rows ends in an even number.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 10″
  • Circumference: 23″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Sylvan Slouch Hat free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Sylvan Slouch Hat

A house with a country looks or Rustic/Sylvan interior is very attractive and pleasant to the eyes. A sculpture or wood flooring and beams provide more country feeling. Wood has always played an important element for interior designers.
 
In fashion, you can get that similar country or rustic look through accessories or clothing. People contrast their dresses with a combination of browns and whites. The wood or weathered look have always inspired me. I was planning to create a different kind of slouch hat. I started browsing online for a different pattern. After some time I felt something was missing in every pattern.

I had already created many hats and had learned a lot about stitches. It wasn’t going to be very challenging. I decided to design all by myself. The outcome was very fascinating; a hybrid between hat and beanie. Unlike the other beanies, the base of this beanie did not sit along the shape of the head. The circular base gave the look of a hat. I named this hat as Sylvan Slouch Hat.

Process:

Base:-

  1. Start with simple double crochet(DC) base. A magic ring with 12 DC.
  2. continue increasing by 12 up to 6 rows or depending on the required diameter for the crown.

Body:-

  1. 1 row of Half double crochet(HDC) around with white yarn
  2. 1 rows of HDC (knit style) around
  3. 1 row DC around with main yarn working on the 3rd/hidden loop of HDC
  4. 1 row of DC around
  5. 1 row of Back Post Double Crochet  (BPDC) around
  6.  1 row of DC with brown yarn around
  7. 1 row of Front Post Double Crochet(FPDC) with brown yarn around
    • You can with continue with 1 more round of DC around. I prefer FPDC since the brown yarn thickness was less than main yarn. I wanted to give the consistent thickness around the hat.
  8. 1 row of BPDC of main yarn around
  9. 1 row of FPDC of brown yarn around
  10. 1 row of HDC or brown yarn.

Brim/Edge:-

  1. 4 rows of Herringbone Half Double Crochet(HHDC) stitched created by Tamara from Moogly with white yarn around.

Caution Section:-

  1. Since the number of rows alters due to different yarn sizes and crochet hooks, it is best to total up the number of rows required to make 1″. Based on this calculation, the position of the bands can be set.
  2. FPDC and BPDC required a bigger crochet hook or loose stitching technique to maintain the seamless look of the beanie.
  3. Depending on the texture of the yarn, you can either choose a larger crochet hook other than recommended one or you can loosely stitch FPDC and BPDC.
    • Since I always do tight stitches, I choose bigger crochet hook than the recommended one. It is more of testing a couple of rows to see the flow.
  4. For edging the last row, you can change the crochet hook to a smaller size to give a tighter set.
  5. Since the base of the crown is DC stitch, the diameter of the crown can be 5.5-6.5″ for the adult woman, depending on the target audience.  The BPDC will not reduce the crown size. 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 9.5″
  • Circumference: 23″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Mom-Daughter Textured Slouchy Hat Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Mom-Daughter Textured Slouchy Hat

I tried making different patterns for a beautiful mum and her lovely daughter, and I was attracted towards the puff stitched slouchy hat made by Vickie Howell. I almost created the half of the hat for the daughter and then I realised the gaps in between would not be good to protect the head from cold air. Sure it looks wonderful but my focus is that the hat should do the basic function of protecting your head and then look good to the eye!

Crochet Free Winter/Fall Pink Mom-Daughter Textured Slouchy Hat Pattern - Knot My Designs

So, I switched to Cabled Textured pattern from Yarnspiration, which I had already listed on my to-do list, they are close stitched and they look beautiful.

Beauty for the brain!

Process:

The pattern is divided into 2 parts. One is the ribbed band and another is the body of the hat which is joined seeming to form this textured hat. The stitches included are Single Crochet (SC), Double Crochet (DC), Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC) along with Slip Stitch (SL ST) and chains (Ch).

Ribbed Band:-

R1: Starting with Ch 10+ (depending on mum or daughter), SC from 2nd hook. Total 9 SC+.

R2: (Working on Back Loop only), SC in every SC. Total 9 SC+.

Repeat R2 till you get the desired length.

Stop at an even row. For the daughter, you can stop in between 56-64 rows. For Mum, you can stop in between 60-72 rows depending on your yarn thickness.

With SL ST, sew the edges and Ch 1. Continue with the same yarn to form a seamless body of the hat.

Remember: the texture hat pattern is formed in multiples of 5. Thus your ribbed band should stop at even number and multiples of 5.

Remember: to measure the width of the ribbed band as this will give to the final height of the hat. Thus, if the ribbed band is 2″ then the body needs to be 7″ to get 9″ height for an adult woman. 

Body:-

Since the ribbed band consumes 2″+, the body of the hat should be 7″ to form a 9″ height of the hat for an adult woman.

Calculation of the body: Final height of the hat – ribbed band height.

R1: Ch 1, SC around every SC edge. Join at the beginning SC with an SL ST. Total SC should be the total number of ribbed rows.

R2: Ch 2, DC on every SC; Join at the beginning DC with SL ST.

R3: Ch 2, 3 FPDC on next 3 DC, 2 BPDC on next 2 DC. Repeat across and join at the beginning DC with SL ST.

R4: Ch 2, 1 BPDC on 1st FPDC, 3 FPDC on next 3 stitches, 2 BPDC on next 3 stitches. Repeat across and join at the beginning DC with SL ST.

R5: Ch 2, 2 BPDC on 2 stitches, 3 FPDC on next 3 stitches, 2 BPDC on next 3 stitches. Repeat across and join at the beginning DC with SL ST.

R6: Ch 2, 1 FPDC on 1st BPDC, 2 BPDC on next 2 stitches, 3 FPDC on next 3 stitches. Repeat across and join at the beginning DC with SL ST.

R7: Ch 2, 2 FPDC on 2 stitches, 2 BPDC on next 2 stitches, 3 FPDC on next 3 stitches. Repeat across and join at the beginning DC with SL ST.

Repeat R3-R7 till you get 5″ or more.

Remember: The Body also needs to be recalculated as we are working bottom up. For an adult woman, if the ribbed band is 2″ then the body needs to be 7″. In this 7″, 3″ should be focused on forming the top base of the hat. Rest 4″ will be the height of the hat body. 

Or if you want to avoid so much calculation, then work on the same instruction for 7″ and sew at the top to make a slouchy hat.

I worked on the slouchy part. So, I repeated R3-R7 till I reached 7″. and sew at the top to create the slouchy effect.

To decrease the base of the hat, you can follow the written pattern of Yarnspirations.

Mom:-

I made the ribbed base with 13 ch and Single Crochet Back Loop Only (SCBLO). End with even row and sew with Slip Stitch (SL ST). I made the base 18″ length, which when joined, forms an 18″ circumference without stretching. It depends on the crochet hook and yarn texture.  The hat expands and thus this ribbed base would be smaller than normal hat circumference i.e. 20″-22″.

The hat size is 9″ and it is sewn at the top.

Ensure the row ends in an even number. The pattern has 3 Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and 2 Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC) and a chain 2 at beginning of every row.

Daughter:-

I made the ribbed base with 10 ch and Single Crochet Back Loop Only (SCBLO). End with even row and sew with Slip Stitch (SL ST). I made the base 14″ length, which when joined, forms an 18″ circumference without being stretched. It also depends on the crochet hook and yarn texture.  The hat expands thus this ribbed base would be smaller than normal hat circumference i.e. 19″.

The hat size is 8″ and it is sewn at the top.

Make sure the row ends in an even number. The pattern has 3 Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and 2 Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC) and a chain 2 at beginning of every row.

Caution Section:

  • Multiples of 8. 4 FPDC and 4BPDC.
  • I will suggest that it is better to rework initially while setting up the crown of the head. Typically, the crown diameter for an adult head should be between 6″-6.5″. As this will grow, it’ll be a comfortable fit for an adult head.
  • For edging the last row, you can change the crochet hook to a smaller size to give a tighter set. But then it should depend on the face shape too, or best is to follow the same hook throughout.
  • Remember the calculation. The body of the hat = Total height of the hat – Ribbed base.
  • To form the body of the hat with decrease base size, you also need to calculate( depending on the target age group).
    • The rest of the height of the hat-body = Total body height of the hat – 3″ (for the decreased base of the hat).

In the end, the hat should measure 22″-23″. The wool stretches on prolonged use. so 22″-23″ is good for more fit and better protection from the cold.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions of Adult Hat:-

  • Height: 9″
  • Circumference: 20″-22″

Defining Dimensions of Daughter Hat:-

  • Height: 8″
  • Circumference: 19″

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. White or brown pom-pom, fur faux. There are different ways to create pompom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give a more feminine touch.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Mix-Match Slouchy Beanie free pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Mix-Match Slouchy Beanie

I stumbled upon a post that gave a beautiful definition to creativity and experimentation. It said that creativity was to think and ask in novel ways; experimentation was the road to creativity. I agree to it. Creativity is nothing, but an outcome of the experiment. It sometimes fails or sometimes opens up a new possibility of knowing the unknown. Quite a few times, what is imagined is simple to achieve. However, sometimes it looks viable in theory but is unachievable in practicality.

In designing, both creativity and experimentation go hand-in-hand. When you experiment with something you get a new output. It might be pleasing to the eye or it might also be a disaster. But play the game safely when you are mixing and matching between various combinations of colours, fabrics or any material. In my quest to creativity, I was looking out to create new items with mix and match concept using the remaining yarn in my Stash Basket. Here is what I got. Bringing contrasting colours together, these crochet slouchy beanies from Knot My Designs are beautiful examples of experimentation and creativity.

Process:

Base and Body:-

  1. Starting with a magic circle and 12 DC on back loop (BLODC), increase by 12 continuously for 6 rows. Total count 72DC.
  2. BLODC 72 times on the previous 72 BLODC. Repeat this row until the hat height measures 7.5-8″.

Brim/Edge:-

72 single crochet(SC) /half double crochet (HDC) depending on the thickness of the yarn to give consistent thickness overall. Continue this till the brim measures 1″.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 7.5″-8″
  • Circumference: 20″-22″.

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
