Hi! Brenna from BrennaAnnHandmade here! 🙂
I’m so excited to share this this month’s free slouchy knit hat pattern with you all! Let’s get started!
*Finished hat fit an average women’s 21-22″ head circumference size
1 Skein Kartopu Melange Wool
1 pair 7mm Straight Knitting Needles
A Crochet Hook or Large Eye Tapestry Needle (For weaving in ends)
K – Knit
P – Purl
K2Tog – Knit 2 stitches together
Step 1: cast on 52 stitches evenly onto one of the knitting needles, using the long-tail cast on method.
Step 2: (Rows 1-12) K2, P2 across.
Step 3: (Rows 13-51) K across.
Step 4: (Row 52) K2Tog across.
Step 5: Cut the working yarn, leaving an extra long tail & using it to thread the tapestry needle. Then thread the needle through all the loops on the working knitting needle, and pull to cinch the top of the hat together & knot to secure. (Do not cut!)
Step 6: Using the extra long tail & tapestry needle, sew the two sides of the hat together, starting at the top, and sewing all the way down to about 2 inches from the bottom. Remove tapestry needle, but do not tie off yet.
Step 7: Take the starting tail of the hat & thread the tapestry needle through. Use this piece to finish sewing the rest of the hat up to meet the point where you stopped sewing before.
Step 8: Tie the 2 tail ends together & cut.
Step 9. Use crochet hook or tapestry needle to weave in ends on the inside of the hat, and then turn the hat right side out.
All finished, enjoy! 🙂
