In ribbed band pattern, 18 sts and 12 rows = 4"/10 cm.

Chain (ch), single crochet (sc), slip stitch (sl st)


Puff: Puff stitch—Yarn over, insert hook in indicated stitch and draw up a loop (3 loops on hook), [yarn over, insert hook in same stitch and draw up a loop] 3 times (9 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through first 8 loops on hook, yarn over and draw through remaining 2 loops on hook.




Ribbed Band

Ch 10.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining ch across, turn—9 sc.

Row 2: Ch 1, working in front loops only, sc in each st across, turn.

Repeat last row until piece measures 21 (22)"/53.5 (56)cm. Fasten off, leaving a long tail. Use tail to sew short ends together to form band.


Join yarn with sl st in edge of band at seam.

Round 1: Ch 1, work 72 (76) sc evenly spaced around edge of band; join with sl st in first sc—72 (76) sc.

Round 2: Ch 3, sk first sc, Puff in next sc, ch 1, *sk next sc, Puff in next sc, ch 1; repeat from * around; join with sl st in top of beginning ch—36 (38) Puffs and 36 (38) ch-1 sps.

Repeat last round until hat measures 11 (12)"/28 (30.5)cm from beginning. DO NOT FASTEN OFF.


Close Top of Hat: Last round worked is top of hat. Hook is currently at top, back center of hat. Keeping loop on hook, insert hook into top, center front of hat, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (sc complete). Pinch side edges to the same center point and sc the edges together (by inserting hook through both thicknesses and completing an sc). The top of the hat will now be in a star formation. Continue to pinch opposite edges and sc them together until top of hat is completely closed. Fasten off.

I made one for my grandson so shortened the hat body - don't want it so slouchy for a boy.


Love this pattern up to point of closing as others have mentioned. I will try to use needle instead of hook and see if that will work for me. Thank you for sharing this pattern.

Can someone please help me!? I'm making this hat for my daughter. I'm on about the 5th row of the hat ( puffs), does the number of puff stay the same or should it be decreasing?? And please help me with the top closure! Thank you!!

I'm confused about the gauge: 18 stitches and 12 rows is 4'' No matter what size hook I use with my worsted weight yarn I cannot get the 18 stitches to be 4 inches when the 12 rows is also 4 inches. In order to get the 18 stitches down to 4 inches, the 12 rows then shrinks down to 3 inches... anyone else having this problem?


Thanks for the pattern, it was very clear and easy to follow. I striped the hat body with three colors. The only change I made was I used a needle instead of a hook to close but I still followed the same directions! I also really liked how you used the front loop for the ribbing, it gave it a much softer look!! I think this is my favorite slouchy hat pattern, thanks again for sharing!!!

My issue is also with closing the top of the hat.. It looks too bulky..by pinching in the sides as described...

I'm no expert, but I will try to answer Melissa and Dakota's questions. On the 3rd row you place the puff/cluster in the space on the row below made by the single chains placed between the puffs. So on that 3rd row I believe the very first puff would be placed into the chain 3 of the row below. You may have to play with it & see what looks better; doing that or skipping ahead to the next chain 1 space. As for Dakota's question the 10 stitches for the band are being worked vertically wheras the 110 stitches are being worked horizontally into the ends of all those rows of 10 stitches. My issue is with closing the top. I just can't picture in my head how pinching the side edges to the middle is going to look. I'd rather decrease several stitches for several rounds first.

I'm not clear on the 3rd row of the hat, do you place the 1st cluster in the space before the 1st cluster on the row below?


I don't understand how you only work ten stitches for the band and then need to crochet over seventy stitches into ten stitches....is this maybe a typo for 110 stitches and the (9) is then wrong for the first row of the band?

This look easy enough too make. I'll give it a try.
