Blue Slouchie Beanie



This Blue Slouchie Beanie from Vickie Howell is adorable for you to wear during the fall or winter months.  It's an easy crochet pattern that uses Stitch.Rock.Love. Sheep(ish) from Caron in a cool Turquoise color. The band is worked in rows while the body is worked in rounds, so this is a great project to help you fine tune your crochet skills.  Make one in all your favorite colors so you have a fall accessory for all of your best outfits!


  • 2 balls Stitch.Rock.Love. Sheep(ish) Yarn from Caron in Turquoise
  • US I-9 (5.5mm) crochet hook, or size to obtain gauge
  • Yarn needle
  • 2 buttons—1"/25mm diameter (optional)

Sizes:  S/M (L/1X)

Finished Measurements:  Beanie measures approximately 22 (23 1/2)"/56 (59.5) cm in circumference

Gauge:  In ribbing pattern, 18 sts = 4"/10cm.



Ribbed Band

  1. Ch 10.
  2. Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining ch across, turn—9 sc.
  3. Row 2: Ch 1, working in front loops only, sc in each sc across, turn.
  4. Repeat last row until piece measures 22 (23 1/2)"/56 (59.5)cm from beginning. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing. Use tail to sew short ends together to form band. Set aside.


  1. Beginning at top of beanie, ch 87 (93); join with sl st in first ch to form a ring, taking care not to twist ch.
  2. Round 1: Ch 3 (dc, ch 2, sc) in same ch as joining sl st (counts as first pattern repeat), *sk next 2 ch, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in next ch; repeat from * around; join with sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch-3—29 (31) pattern repeats.
  3. Round 2: Sl st to first ch-sp, ch 3, (dc, ch 2, sc) in first ch-sp, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in each remaining ch-sp around; join with sl st in top of beginning ch.
  4. Repeat last round until piece measures 11"/28cm from beginning. Fasten off.


  1. Close Top of Hat: At top of hat, bring center front and center back of beanie together. Join yarn with sc, inserting hook through center front and center back (joining front and back at center). Pinch side edges to the same center point and sc the edges together (by inserting hook through both thicknesses and completing a sc). The top of the beanie will now be in a star formation. Continue to pinch opposite edges and sc them together until top of beanie is completely closed. Fasten off.
  2. Attach Band: Using yarn needle, sew band to lower edge of beanie. Sew buttons to band, if desired. Using yarn needle, weave in all ends.

I'm working on this right now. I think it would be a little more clear if it had the following: For the body, beginning on Round 2, the pattern should say Sl st to first ch2-sp, etc. instead of just ch-sp.

i loved the finished product. but i had to change the pattern up some. the s/m size was way to big and I am 31 and have an average head size. I made it 20" but probably could have made it a little smaller. I took the suggestion of someone elses reply of sc all the way around the one side of the band. instead of 87sc i believe i did 47sc. i used red heart Soft. 4ply worsted weight that also required the same hook size.

I'm confused with how round 2 ends and continues with round 3 on the body.... Is there a video or a different explanation?

Some changes to make the pattern easier and better: 1) do the ridge band in BLO instead of FLO - produces a stronger and prettier ridge 2) instead of making 2 separate pieces, simply sc along 1 side of band (after joining the ends), then work beanie pattern from there 3) to close top, simply weave in a piece of yarn all the way around the top, then pull closed tightly (like a draw string). stitch the end of the yarn inside to stop it from unraveling. I made this with these changes and it came out fabulous!

I made this hat and got all the way to the end and could not understand the closing of the hat. I am a published designer with Crochet World and have made many difficult crochet items but this one left me completely in the dark. I tried several times and got so frustrated with it that I tore it all out and looked for another pattern. The closing instructions are not clear at all.

Where would I find the Stitch.Rock.Love Sheep(ish) yarn from Caron? I can't find it even online. Somebody help me, please?


But, it is apparently NOT too easy. I hope will have better luck than the previous reviewers!

I finished the ribbed band. Which stitch should I use to sew the ends together?

I'm already start this project except stuck with round 1 and 2. Wish you did provide the video and maybe it will be helpful. So I can complete and looks like this picture. It is frustrating.

The instructions for this pattern aren't very clear. The finishing for the top of the hat doesn't make any sense really. And I'm confused how you attach the band to the hat. Could you possible revise the pattern and post it again?
