Over the last couple months, I worked on quite a few ribbed beanies like Reversible Ribbed Beanie, Pista Twisted Hat, 2 Layer Twisted Hat, Ribbed Moss Hat etc. It was the perfect time for me to try something of my own.
With all the knowledge of ribbed pattern, I started designing a hat on my own. Slouch hats are very cool even if you are planning to wear it for any professional work. Thus, I considered including the Slouch effect in my pattern, to make it casual as well as professional winter accessory.
I call my design as Blue Ribbed Beanie or Blue Ribbed Slouchy Hat, a combination of Blue Ribbed Slouchy Beanie/Hat.
The pattern is simple. For this pattern, you need to be familiar with Front post double crochet (FPDC) and Back post double crochet (BPDC) stitches.This hat could be made in few hours. The hat can be divided into 2 parts- Ribbed based, and Ribbed body.
R1: chain 10
R2: Single Crochet (SC) from the 2nd chain. total 9 sc.
R3: SC in back loops only (SCBLO)
Continue R3 till the size is fit for defined for an adult woman. Join the band using Slip stitch (SS). Do not cut the yarn.
Note: The ribbed count should be multiples of 10.
R1: With the same yarn Chain2 and continue making Double Crochet on each of the SC.

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