2 Slouchy Beanie with Puff Ball Pattern

I have been making a bunch of these slouchy beanies all weekend. I think they're the fastest, easiest, cutest hats to make to accessorize with this winter. So here's a pattern of how I made this beanie. 

Yarn: I used a worsted weight yarn with changing colors. 
Hook: I hook
Size: Any (I'll explain how to customize the fit)
(any yarn/hook will work for this pattern)

*This hat is crocheted from the bottom to the top. 

Beanie Ribbing
To start chain 7 stitches (or more if you want your ribbing taller)
Row 1: Sc in the second ch. from hook and in each ch. until the end. Ch. 1 and turn.
Row 2: sc in the front loop only of each st across. Ch. 1 and turn.
Row 3-?: Continue row 2 until your ribbing fits snugly around your head. 
Fasten off and sew ends together.

Beanie Body
Once you are finished with the ribbing sc a row around the top, sl to join. 
Row 1-?: ch. 2, hdc in each st around. Sl to top of ch. 2. Repeat until you have the desired length. 

Note: The longer you make the beanie body the bigger the slouch. To finish sew the top together by sewing from opposite sides and pulling to tighten and close the top of the beanie. Sew a puff ball on top of the beanie and you're done! (here's a link on how to make a puff ball)

  1. I love this hat! And your pictures look great. Did you use yarn scraps to make it?

    1. Thanks! No, but that would be smart. I used yarn that changed just changed colors.
