The Yarn

I designed this crochet hat with my favorite Lion Brand Yarn, Vanna’s Choice! It is a 100% acrylic four weight yarn that is great to work with.

I use it for so many of my projects because it is easy to find, comes in so many beautiful colors, and is easily washable and dryable.

For this slouch, I used the colors Dusty Purple, Eggplant, and Linen, which I think complement each other nicely. Take a look at them below.

Slouchy Beanie Crochet Pattern 

Since this crochet slouchy hat is worked in rows, it is a little easier to make than a hat worked in the round, which makes the perfect hat for a beginner to try.

Plum Slouchy Crochet Hat Pattern


  1. Really cute hat. Which rows would you recommend deleting if you didn’t want it slouchy but a shorter length? Thanks so much

    1. Thanks Judy!

      I’d probably end with row 15. You could always measure as you go to make sure it’d be a perfect fit! Happy Crocheting


  2. Super cute Problem….I’m using same yarn, same size hook, it’s super tiny!!! I even tried crocheting super loose, almost, but stretched to the max!! Should I go up one or two hook sizes!?!?!?

    1. Hi Lisa,
      I would definitely go up a hook size or two until the correct gauge is reached. 🙂

  3. Cute hat but my first attempt didn’t turn out as expected. I followed the directions exactly and the hat looks great but it barely fits my two year old. It’s tiny! My gauge is correct and I used the same size hook and the Vanna’s Choice yarn. Any ideas about why this didn’t work?

    1. Hi Jessica,
      Do you have a picture you could show me? What is your hat measuring at?

  4. Thank you so much for sharing your talent. I have some grandchildren that will love these.

  5. I’m making this pattern as a Christmas gift, colors slightly altered for a man, but they’re just so handsome together.

    However, I think the pattern is off. The photos show every other row as linen, but the written pattern is a 3 row repeat, which would cause the two colors to touch each other. I suppose the pictured object is the intended design?

    1. Hi Geeni,

      The pattern repeat is a 3 row repeat but goes row 2, row 1, row 3, so the colors will be apart. Hope this helps! 🙂


      1. Thank you for the reply. However, by following the pattern, I’m not making the same hat as you! If the pattern is [2, 1, 3], that’s [c, a, b] or Linen, Dusky Purple, Eggplant…meaning the purples are definitely touching. But the photos show every other row as Linen. If that’s the case, the pattern should be [2, 1, 2, 3], right?

      2. I think you are right! I will go look at the pattern again when I get back from taking my kids to school 🙂

  6. Thank you so much, this is a colorful and very attractive hat. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.

  7. Is the ch 51 supposed to be like the measurement around your head?
