This season, I’ve gotten very excited about the Herringbone Stitch. There are so many different ways to change up the look of this stitch! Today, I’m introducing a set of patterns that utilize the Herringbone Double Crochet stitch (HbDC), worked in a continuous round.

The interesting thing about this stitch for me was that as I started experimenting with it, I quickly discovered that while the right side of my work kind of bored me, I was intrigued by the texture showing up on the wrong side. So, I designed the Savannah Slouch Hat to showcase the wrong side!

This pattern is great for a confident beginner to wants to branch out beyond those most basic stitches we all learn at first.

And, it has a matching scarf which is even more beginner friendly! Showcasing a different texture on each side, the matching scarf is so simple; you’ll definitely want to bring it along to your next Netflix binge.

Difficulty: Easy

Finished Size: 9" tall x 9.5" wide (when laid flat)

Hooks: K (6.5mm) and H (5.00mm)

Yarn: About 150 yards of Vanna's Choice by Lion Brand (that's a little less than 1 skein). Vanna's Choice is a #4 aran yarn. The sample is shown in "Linen".

Gauge: With larger hook, 10 rows of 11 HbDC = 4" square

You'll also need: Yarn needle, stitch marker, 3 small buttons, sewing needle, and thread to match yarn color.

Abbreviations Used:
   MC (magic circle - view tutorial here)
   ST
 (stitch)
   SL ST (slip stitch)
   SK (skip)
   CH (chain)
   SC (single crochet)
   HDC (half double crochet)
   HbDC (herringbone double crochet; see "special stitch" below)

Special Stitch:
HbDC - Herringbone Double Crochet. When worked in the round without turning, this stitch creates two beautiful and very different textures on either side of the piece. Here's how you do it:

HbDC: Yarn over, insert hook into stitch. Yarn over, pull loop through stitch AND through first loop on hook (this is similar to a slip stitch motion). Two loops remain on hook. Yarn over and pull through first loop on hook. Two loops remain on hook. Yarn over again and pull the loop through both loops on the hook.

(If you need additional help, Moogly has an excellent video tutorial here.)


Notes:
(1) This pattern is written in American Standard Terms.
(2) Pattern is worked in a continuous, seamless round until the band. Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of rounds.

The Pattern

To begin: Make a MC; CH1.

Round 1: 12 HbDC in MC. (12)

Round 2: 2 HbDC in each ST around. (24)

Round 3: 2 HbDC in each ST around. (48)

Round 4: (2 HbDC in next ST, 1 HbDC in each of the next 2 STS) around. (64)

Rounds 5-15: HbDC in each ST around. (64)

If you want a slouchier hat, add more rounds here before moving on to Round 16.

Round 16: HbDC in each of the first 56 STS (6 STS remain). HDC in each of the next 2 STS. SC in each of the next 2 STS. SL ST in each of the 2 remaining STS. (64)

Switch to H Hook.

Round 17: CH1, turn. SC in each ST around. (Do not join.) CH9. This is the base for our button flap. (64 + CH9)

Round 18: Turn. SC in 2nd CH from hook and in remaining 7 CHs. Continue to SC in each ST around (you're going in the opposite direction from Round 17). (72)

Rounds 19-23: CH1, turn. SC in each ST around (including the button flap). (72)

Round 24 (edging): CH1, do not turn. SC in each ST around flap and around the entire base, putting 3SC in each corner. Join with a SL ST to the top of the first SC.

Fasten off. Turn hat inside out to display the "wrong side" (the one with more texture). Now considering this the outside of the hat, weave your ends securely into the inside of the hat.

Button Flap
Line up the flap with the section of the band that it will overlap, and use a needle and appropriately-colored thread to sew it in place. Position buttons as desired and sew them in place as well.

    Thank you for this gorgeous hat pattern. This is going to make an awesome Christmas present.

  • Terrie November 11, 2016, 5:28 pm

    Hi, thanks for the pattern. I am on row 16, 56+6=62 , Do I just leave the last two stitches unworked then turn? Thanks.

    • Rebecca November 11, 2016, 7:13 pm

      Looks like a typo, should be “each of the first 58 STS”. Good catch 🙂

  • Carrie C November 26, 2016, 12:25 pm

    I whipped this up in a day! Love it and you other detailed creative patterns! Thank you very much. Onto Shiplap Slouch❤️

  • Jen December 4, 2016, 10:36 am

    Good morning- I lone this savannah slouch pattern. I’m on row 10 and just realized I’m working it in chunky weight yarn with a “k” hook. Should I keep going, do you think it will turn out?
    Thanks for any suggestions

    • Rebecca December 4, 2016, 4:03 pm

      It will probably turn out too large. Without knowing your tension, my best guess would be for you to go back to the last increase round and shoot for somewhere around 54 stitches. (The hat pattern I have that does use chunky yarn has a 54 stitch circumference, so that’s my best guess.)

      • Jen December 4, 2016, 5:59 pm

        Ok thanks so much. I’ll try that.
