Special thanks to Lion Brand Yarn for providing the yarn for this sample!

I have another new slouch pattern for you! This one is simple, but it has a eye-catching spiral design that adds a lot of visual interest.

The Yarn

I’ve been a fan of Lion Brand’s Heartland Yarn for a while. It’s a lighter worsted weight acrylic yarn that comes in a range of beautiful, natural colors, all of which have just the right amount of sheen. My stores don’t carry the full range of colors, so I was very excited when Lion Brand sent me some shades that I’d never seen before. For this hat, I used a color called “Katmai.” Click here to view all the colors available. It was the combination of the color of the yarn and the design of the hat that made me think of snow capped mountains, so that’s how I got the name for the pattern!

Size:
One Size Fist Most (Preteen - Adult Woman).
Hat measures about 9.5” across at band, and 9.5” tall. 

Materials:

  • Hook sizes K (6.5mm), H(5.0mm)
  • Yarn needle
  • 150-160 yards of worsted weight yarn (I used Lion Brand Heartland in "Katmai")
  • Stitch marker (a bobby pin works great)

Gauge:
With H hook, 6 HDC x 4 rows = 1.5” square

Abbreviations Used:
ST (stitch)
MC (magic circle - view tutorial here)
SK (skip)
CH (chain)
SS (slip stitch)
SC (single crochet)
HDC (half double crochet)
SC2TOG (single crochet 2 together)

Notes:
(1) This pattern is written in American Standard Terms.
(2) This hat is worked in a continuous spiral. Do not join at the end of each round and do not chain at the beginning of rounds unless instructed. Use a stitch marker to mark the last stitch of each round.
(3) The CH2s that create the holes in the hat still count as stitches. Keep this in mind when checking your stitch count, and when you reach Round 24 where it tells you to SC in the next 6 stitches (the CH2 counts as the first 2 of the 6).

  • S R PEEL November 10, 2015, 12:06 pm

    I am thinking of doing this in Xmas red and putting Xmas green holly leaves with red berries on them. Love this pattern. x

  • Beth McC November 10, 2015, 12:50 pm

    My daughter moves slouch caps… and she will love this one! Great design! The hard part is — do I make the Snowcapped one or the Snowdrift one first? 🙂

  • Patricia Cheek November 10, 2015, 9:50 pm

    Thanks for your great free patterns. My skills have greatly improved with many of your patterns and tutorials.

  • Fayleen November 11, 2015, 10:26 pm

    I just made the slouchy and love the design and how quickly it works up. My only issue was that I had to do a couple of extra decrease rows as the hat seemed loose around my head. I do tend to crochet quite loosely and was wondering if I went down to a 4.5mm if that might help without doing the extra decreases? Any suggestions would be great, although the hat still came out great! I used the Heartland 4-ply and it such a soft yarn and love the look it gives the slouchy!

    • Rebecca November 12, 2015, 9:53 am

      Hi Fayleen! That might work… the only way to know is to try it or to do a gauge check. 🙂

  • Linda G. Smith November 22, 2015, 2:37 pm

    I love your hats. Thanks for the pattern.

  • Jennifer December 3, 2015, 12:16 pm

    When starting 1st 4 rows aren’t flat…is this normal or did I do something wrong? Wanting to a catch a mistake before I get too far Thanks

    • Rebecca December 3, 2015, 12:32 pm

      You’re fine! It’s supposed to have a wavy base. Sorry it isn’t visible in the photo. 🙂 It gives it a sort of cinched look.

  • liz January 2, 2016, 2:20 pm

    Thank you so much for sharing your talents. I look forward to making these for my grandkids and of course one for myself.

  • Carol M January 6, 2016, 3:14 pm

    Hi There Rebecca:

    I love your patterns, have done several already and was one of the thousands that did the Wildflower Bag crochet-a-long.

    I have tried to comment on your blog, but the computer keeps spitting it out, so I figured I would email you this way instead of on your blog.

    Question: On round 24 of the above pattern, can you tell me what to do with the ch2 spaces? When you finish up round 23, the ch2 space is the beginning of round 24, if you skip over them I end up with 56 stitches, if you do 2 sc in chain 2 space and then 4 sc to make 6sc and then ch2tog, you end up with less than 72 stitches…please help!

    Thank you.

    Carol M.

    • Rebecca January 7, 2016, 9:26 am

      You won’t skip over them. I tried my best to explain it in the Notes section (see #3).

      • Carol M. January 7, 2016, 12:15 pm

        If you count the ch2 space as 2 and continue in that fashion that you stated, you will be sc2tog a total of 10 times which will give you 70 final stitches, also, you run into a problem twice when the sc you are to crochet together are the ch2 spaces. I sc 2 in the space, counted 6 and then sc2tog which happened to be the last 2 sc before the ch2 space, 8 sections minus 8 stitches (sc2tog) =72 stitches. The hat came out beautiful, thanks!

  • Kim Barclay January 11, 2016, 9:27 am

    Love your patterns! The Snow Capped Slouch Hat looks like it will be my next project. I went and got Lion Brand Heartland yarn because I love the look of the hat you made.

  • Mary Lou January 11, 2016, 9:39 am

    I love all the variations of this hat!

  • April January 11, 2016, 9:46 am

    Love this hat, looks so comfy!

  • Martha January 12, 2016, 5:43 am

    Made this for my little girl with a size smaller hook, she loved it so much she had me make one for her teacher for Christmas. 😀

  • Pam Janssen January 13, 2016, 11:35 am

    I really like this pattern. It looks complex, yet when reading through the instructions, it appears to be quite easy. Can’t wait to try out this pattern and oh so many more of your patterns.

  • Irene Menge January 15, 2016, 10:48 am

    I will make this for my granddaughter. She has a number of hats, but they’re very juvenile and she gets angry when my grandson laughs at her. This hat would be perfect.

  • Cristy January 18, 2016, 1:43 pm

    I have made this hat as gifts over and over! It’s one of my favorite patterns.

  • Brenda January 26, 2016, 2:32 pm

    Hi Rebecca,
    First of all thank you for sharing this beautiful pattern. I love this pattern it works up so fast. I on round 24 I read the note #3 it said the CH2 counts as the first 2 of the 6 okay, that leave 4 stitches so do I sc2tog twice?

  • Anne August 7, 2016, 10:10 am

    Hi there. I so love your patterns. You are super talented! Was wondering if I could use red heart super saver yarn for this pattern. If I may, do you have any pattern using this brand of yarn? Thanks so much

    • Rebecca August 9, 2016, 9:25 am

      You can substitute any yarn as long as you do a successful gauge check. I don’t have any that use RHSS. 🙂

  • marie reine waltzing December 10, 2016, 10:50 pm

    j’aimes les projets que vous nous fournissez c’est merveilleux je vous rend un grand hommage car vous faites cela gratuitement quand on veut faire un cadeau ,acheter la laine et que le patron nous est fourni gratuitement cela fais toute une différence merci et encore merci joyeux noël et une bonne année a vous tous.

  • Elizabeth December 21, 2016, 5:29 pm

    I tried it out and everything went on quickly without a hitch. I used Caron Simple Soft in a sort of shimmery pale gold color. It’s not my style, but it’s certainly going to be a hit as a dirty santa gift along w/ the cowl I made! My husband says it looks fashionable.

  • Renee Johnson August 28, 2017, 10:11 pm

    Thank You so much Rebecca! I Really Love your Gorgeous Designs an: wish I knew how to do what you do; but God have you that Talent. And you are such a Sweetheart for sharing your patterns with us all. I Appreciate your Gift!

  • Tenealle September 28, 2017, 12:05 pm

    Thank you so much for sharing this pattern, I am excited to try it!
