Thank you to Cascade Yarns for providing the yarn for this sample!

I recently discovered Cascade Yarn’s Longwood Sport when I used it to make the South Haven Slouch pattern last month. I really fell in love with it, and wanted to work with it again. As a newbie crocheter, I always avoided patterns with anything thinner than worsted weight yarn because I thought it would take forever to work up. But eventually, I branched out and discovered that I actually love the look of  items crocheted with thinner yarn. I encourage you to try it if you haven’t already!

This slouchy hat, called the Yenni Slouch (that’s pronounced like the English “Jenny”, by the way) is named after my beautiful niece who is modeling it in the photo. It also has a pair of matching boot cuffs — which, conveniently, are basically just little versions of the hat!

Level: Easy

One Size Fist Most (Preteen - Adult Woman).
Hat measures 10” across at band, and is 9” tall. 


  • H hook (5.00mm) and G hook (4.25mm)
  • Yarn needle
  • Cascade Yarns Longwood Sport*, 250-270 yards. The color in the photos is Doeskin Heather. 
                 *About Longwood Sport:
      Weight: #3 light 
                  Fiber: 100% Superwash Extrafine Merino Wool
                  Yardage: 100 g (3.5 oz) / 273 yds (250 m)
                  Gauge: 22-24 sts = 4" (10 cm), US 5-6 (3.75-4.0mm)
  • Button embellishment (mine is 1-1/8")

Gauge: With H hook, 4HDC = 1"

Stitches Used:
CH (chain)
SS (slip stitch)
SC (single crochet)
HDC (half double crochet)
DC (double crochet)
SC+DC (this just means to put a single crochet and a double crochet in the same stitch)

Special Terminology:
3rd Loop - Some rows call for the stitches to be completed in the "3rd loop". When working in turned rows, and after completing a row of HDC, these loops will be visible just below the front loop. So instead of inserting your hook into the top loops, you'll only insert it into that 3rd loop. This will force the top loops to go to the front of your work, which is how we get the "ribbing" effect.

(1) This pattern is written in American Standard terms.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

To begin:
Using H Hook, and leaving a 12" tail, CH29.

Row 1:  SC+DC in 3rd CH from hook. (Sk next ST, SC+DC in next ST) across. (28)

Row 2: CH1, turn. Skip 1st ST, SC+DC in next ST. (Sk next ST, SC+DC in next ST) across. (28)

Row 3: CH1, turn. Skip 1st ST, SC+DC in next ST. (Sk next ST, SC+DC in next ST) across. (28)

Row 4: CH1, turn. SK 1st ST. HDC in each of the next 26 STS. 2HDC in last ST. (28)

Row 5: CH1, turn. Working in 3rd loops, (SK next ST, SC+DC in next ST) across. (28)

Rows 6-72: Repeat Rows 2-5 in order until you have 72 total rows (you will end with a repeat of Row 4).

Switch to G hook.

Row 73: CH1, DO NOT turn. Begin to SC down the LONG edge of the project, putting 5SC in each section between ribbing rows (see photo below for a visual). You should end up with 90SC. Then, CH 11 to create the base of your button flap.


Row 74: Turn your work. SC in 2nd CH from hook and in each remaining CH. Continue to SC across. (100)

Rows 75-84: CH1, turn. SC across. (100)

Row 85 (edging): CH1, turn. SC across (100). Putting (SC, CH1, SC) in both corners, continue to SC around the edge of the button flap. Stop when you get here:


Sewing the hat together
Fasten off your yarn, leaving a long tail. Using a yarn needle, sew the ends of the hat together. Utilize the 3rd loop of the edge with the HDCs in order to blend the seam in so it is hardly noticeable:


Once you get to the top of the hat, make a knot and weave in the end.

Cinching the top
Turn your hat inside out. Use your starting tail to cinch the top of the hat by threading it through a yarn needle and weaving the needle in and out along the top edge of the hat at even intervals. Once you've gone all the way around, pull the tail tight and insert your yarn needle across the cinched area a few times to really keep it closed, then make a knot and weave in the end. Turn your hat right-side out again.yennislouch-cinching

Finishing the Button Flap
We still need to sew our button flap in place and attach our button. Using a needle and appropriately-colored thread, position the button flap in place and sew along its 3 edges to secure it. Use your needle and thread to attach your button as well.

    love this hat. really cute.

    • Rebecca October 13, 2015, 1:34 pm

      I’m glad you like it!

  • Tina October 13, 2015, 1:27 pm

    Another beautiful hat. Where can I find the yarn you used and how would this work with worsted weight? I’m also
    A newbie and I love using lions brand heartland yarn and I love this yarn from hobby lobby.

    • Rebecca October 13, 2015, 1:37 pm

      If you want to use the same yarn I used, you can buy it direct from I Love This Yarn worsted would be too thick, however, there is an I Love This Yarn Sport Weight that is the same weight as what I used. Heartland wouldn’t be too far off as it’s a thinner worsted yarn, but it would probably come out a tad too large and you’d probably have to get out a ruler and subtract stitches as necessary to keep the correct final measurements. If that sounds daunting, I’d go with the ILTY Sport. 🙂

      • Tina October 13, 2015, 4:28 pm

        ok thank you very much. I do have some I love this yarn sport that I have been hoarding in my stash that I just stare at not knowing what to do with it. I am a newbie and I’m scared of sport yarn but I will try this one. I have made the sandy slouch and it was a hit. I loved how easy it was to read and it came out so beautiful. My niece loves it 🙂

  • Oceo October 14, 2015, 9:56 am

    Waouh super bravo

  • Maureen October 14, 2015, 11:17 am

  • Siobhan October 14, 2015, 1:13 pm

    I have become addicted to your site. Your patterns are easy to follow and your pictures are so beautiful. I am a Little Monkeys groupie!!

    • Rebecca October 15, 2015, 9:03 am

      Awesome! Thank you 🙂

  • Elizabeth October 14, 2015, 2:35 pm

    Good afternoon!

    Do you have to use DK yarn for this pattern? Will it still look ok with worsted yarn? I only ask since I am trying to use up yarn I have in my yarn stash…

    • Rebecca October 15, 2015, 9:02 am

      It would work fine with worsted yarn — since the hat is worked flat, you’d just need to adjust your stitches per row, as well as your final row count, to match the final measurements of the hat. It’s not going to look as finely detailed as it will with the thinner yarn, but it will still have the general look.

  • Patty October 14, 2015, 3:27 pm

    Love these patterns. Thanks for sharing.

  • Yolanda Madrid October 14, 2015, 6:20 pm

    Beautiful and the color…love it! Thanks for sharing! ♡♡♡ 🙂

  • Darlene P. October 14, 2015, 11:31 pm

    I love your patterns and . . . . this one is absolutely beautiful. I totally understand why it is your favorite! It complements your lovely niece spectacularly. Matching boot cuffs are superb. My daughter has already put her request in for this set. Thank you so very much for posting this pattern. I so appreciate your generosity. Your pattern designs are wonderful!

  • Jeanette Hamrick October 16, 2015, 12:40 pm

    I absolutely adore your patterns. Your directions are clear, concise, and easy to understand. I have been crocheting since my grandmother taught me when I was about 5 or 6. Now I am retired. I had never crocheted anything CAL until your Wildflower shoulder bag which I thoroughly enjoyed and while working on the first one of those my daughter, niece and granddaughter are wanting me to teach them to crochet. Now my most difficult task is getting each of them to stick to their decision as to which slouchy hat patterns they intend to us for their first project. Every time they settle on a pattern you come out with a new pattern and one of them decides on your latest pattern. I wanted to thank you for all the great choices you have given us and it may be summer before my begginers finish but after making 3 of the wildflower shoulder bags I know they will be thrilled with the finished product.

    • Rebecca October 16, 2015, 2:59 pm

      Wow, thank you so much for your kind words! Please tell the girls I wish them luck as they learn. 🙂

  • Rachel October 16, 2015, 7:23 pm

    Love the look, it makes me wanna run and get crocheting! And I love you have the cuffs,too.

  • Jori October 19, 2015, 1:00 pm

    I love this pattern! I started with the H hook, but it was too “stiff”, so I used a J hook and finished this, but it has no slouch to it….it’s still beautiful, but I think the pattern needs to be a bit longer than the beginning 29 chains. or maybe my yarn was too heavy.
    Thank you for sharing this beautiful pattern!

    • Rebecca October 19, 2015, 6:12 pm

      It’s probably the yarn. What are you using?

      • Jori October 23, 2015, 1:15 pm

        I used, I love this Wool, super soft. It’s still a beautiful pattern, and thank you again for sharing it. I will be using it a lot as i’ve gotten so many wonderful comments on it.

        • Rebecca November 12, 2015, 12:38 pm


          I Love This Wool is a #4 worsted weight yarn, isn’t it? That might be your problem. This pattern calls for #3 lightweight yarn. 🙂

          • Jori November 16, 2015, 1:33 pm

            Ok, thanks!

  • Grannylovesknits October 22, 2015, 4:56 pm

    Another great pattern. I’m making some chemo hats and this looks a lovely design, thinking of using Berroco’s nylon/acrylic comfort dk on 3.75mm & 4mm hooks to size. Thanks.

  • margarita hernandez November 2, 2015, 4:36 pm

    i made this , easy to understand , am glad and thaksfull .. thanks, thanks

  • MARTHA December 1, 2015, 6:16 am

    muy útil gracias

  • Shirley E. December 4, 2015, 11:49 pm

    I like this pattern and agree with you about your niece being beautiful. I’d be taking pictures all the time! Is that, by any chance, a matching cowl in the introductory picture of you? Is the pattern available? Could you send it to me? I just discovered you because of a link on allfreecrochet.

    • Rebecca December 5, 2015, 7:45 am

      Welcome, Shirley! Wow, you have a sharp eye. 🙂 That is indeed a matching pattern (it’s an infinity scarf). Unfortunately the pattern is not yet released, but it will be soon!

  • Rachael December 7, 2015, 11:44 pm

    I love this pattern! I was wondering if you happen to have matching gloves to go with it. I’m making the hat and scarf as a gift and would love to use this stitch/pattern base for matching gloves too.

    • Rebecca December 30, 2015, 10:19 am

      I don’t, I’m sorry 🙂

  • Pat McElrath December 12, 2015, 7:01 pm

    Hello……i love all your work thanks for sharing. Im interested in the yenni hat i was tryning to order the yarn…so i wanted to know will the heartland yarn be okay….thankyou…..i love all your patterns. ..

    • Rebecca December 12, 2015, 7:15 pm

      If you’re comfortable with possibly making adjustments in the pattern, then yes, you’ll be fine. Heartland is technically a #4 weight, and this pattern calls for a #3. Heartland is thin, though, so it will be close. Just look at the finished measurements of the hat and measure as you go. (Don’t forget to account for the band, which isn’t worked until the end.)

  • Megan January 1, 2016, 11:58 pm

    Hi there! I was wondering if you knew any tweaks to the pattern if I wanted to use a yarn that was weight #4 and medium to have it turn out right?

    • Rebecca January 3, 2016, 5:38 pm

      Sure! It’s pretty simple since this pattern is worked flat. I would choose an H or I hook. You just want your starting chain (keep it an odd number) to be about 7-7.5″ (slightly stretched), and you’ll do your row repeats until you get to about 21″. Then you’ll do the band of the hat as written. It should come out ok!

  • Katherine Adams January 11, 2016, 9:04 am

    Love this!

  • Darlene . January 11, 2016, 9:28 am

    I made this lovely hat for my daughter for Christmas. The pattern was a joy to follow, so well written, and the hat is beautiful!!! Thank you for this incredible pattern!!!

  • Tiffany Acuff January 11, 2016, 9:29 am

    I can’t wait to make this hat! I know just who I’ll gift it to when I do!

  • Pamela Emerson January 11, 2016, 9:55 am

    I much prefer headbands and ear warmers but I love this design. It has character and the knit look stitches are cool!

  • Linda January 11, 2016, 10:00 am

    Love this! Looks fun to make and it would look great on my daughter

  • Doreen Musson January 11, 2016, 10:49 am

    I LOVE this hat and can’t wait to find the yarn!

  • Lori January 15, 2016, 7:23 pm

    LOVE this Yenni!!!

  • Sheridan Hannah January 22, 2016, 6:17 pm

    I live in Australia and it is impossible to purchase a 4.25 hook – I have spent days searching to no avail. I love your hat and wonder if I can still make it even though I don’t have the right hook. I’m sure I could work something out if I was proficient but I am still a beginner at crochet. Can you help please?

    • Rebecca January 25, 2016, 10:16 am

      You can use a 4.00 or a 4.50. You’ll just want to keep a ruler handy and make sure your hat is shaping up to be the right size, which might require adding/subtracting from the starting chain (keep it an odd number), or not doing as many rows. 🙂

  • JC January 23, 2016, 11:23 am

    Wow! This pattern is gorgeous and easier than I thought it would be! I’m enjoying this project as the snow falls 🙂

  • Cassandra Veliz January 24, 2016, 8:40 am

    Thank you for sharing! I’ve made some beautiful hats for my sisters with this!

  • Micheline Babin February 9, 2016, 7:28 am

    It’s beautyful I will try to do it for my grand dauther. She look a lot like the beauty on this page. Tank you very much. It more than 20 years that i din’t crochet.
    you give mIt a good pass time.

  • Donnii February 9, 2016, 1:06 pm

    Hi, love our patterns, but find them a little confusing. For instance in this hat pattern, Row 5: CH1, turn. Working in 3rd loops, (SK next ST, SC+DC in next ST) across. (28)….What do you mean 3rd loops? As a suggestion, you might think about adding a visual. Please advise, Thanks

  • Erica August 17, 2016, 11:50 pm

    How did you end up with 90 SC total 5SC in between the ribs. I end up with 14 ribs only which gives me a total of 75SC. I don’t know where are the rest to total to your 90. Please help!

    • Rebecca August 18, 2016, 9:33 am

      You should have 17 ribs, creating 18 sections. 18×5=90.

  • Sharon August 20, 2016, 12:28 am

    I really like the look of this pattern and have a Deborah nor vile everyday soft worsted yarn I’ve been planning on using for this type of pattern. Will this work. I can never seem to find a smaller weight yarn that’s not too expensive?

    • Rebecca August 20, 2016, 6:58 pm

      It will most likely be too thick, but the only real way to know is to do a gauge check. If you have to go down so many hook sizes that the fabric becomes stiff, it probably won’t work. If you have a Hobby Lobby nearby, they have a very nice #3 yarn called “I Love This Yarn Sport” that is very affordable 🙂

  • saroj August 23, 2016, 4:51 am

    Thank you great pattern. much appreciated

  • Kelly Sherriff August 30, 2016, 3:12 am

    Hello, I am new to crochet and I am giving your lovely pattern a go. I have used chunky wool and using a 6mm hook. I have done about 20 rows now and it’s just coming out at 9″ long I thought it would be longer as I’m using bigger wool and hooks to your pattern or have I got this wrong? Also on row 4 do you put an extra 2hdc every time you get round to doing this row again. I hope you can help.

    • Rebecca August 30, 2016, 10:00 am

      Yes, you’ll follow the instructions exactly as written, including the 2hdc. (Make sure you are also skipping the first ST of the row to account for it.) Regarding the length, are you referring to the tallness of the hat? The hat ends up being 9″ tall if you have the correct gauge, so if you’re using a larger yarn and larger hook, then the fact that it’s already 9″ without adding the band at the end (which adds a couple of inches) sounds about right.

      • Kelly Sherriff August 30, 2016, 10:59 am

        Thank you Rebecca, just worried I will do all 72 rows and get to the end to find it fits a small child than fit myself. Without the band it’s currently about 9inches tall. I am wondering if I should start again before I go any further but make my starting chain longer.

        • Rebecca August 30, 2016, 11:26 am

          I think it just comes down to how slouchy you like your slouch hats. The one in the photo is 9″ tall.

  • alyssa September 18, 2016, 11:44 pm

    i love this, pretty pattern
    could you please tell me the number of inches long the 72 rows turned out to be?
    (trying to make with worsted weight on G hook, want to know what row to stop on!)

    • Rebecca September 19, 2016, 1:34 pm

      I can’t tell you exactly, but based on the final measurements of the hat it was probably about 10-10.5″ long.

      • alyssa September 19, 2016, 5:09 pm

        No sorry, I do not mean the height of the hat, I mean the length of the 72 rows! (which would be way longer than 10″) …is there any way you could remember or get the length (before joining/gathering)? thanks!!

        • Rebecca September 19, 2016, 6:04 pm

          Whoops sorry – I knew what you were asking, I just glanced at the finished width and wasn’t even thinking about the fact that the finished measurements are of the hat when laid flat after seaming. The long piece should be double what I told you, about 20-21″ long. (The height of the body of the hat should actually be more like 7-7.5″ to account for the fact that you still have to add the band at the end.) Hope that clears it up 🙂

          • alyssa September 19, 2016, 6:08 pm

            awesome, thanks! i think i estimated just about right but wanted to make sure

  • Sharon September 19, 2016, 4:45 pm

    Hi! I’m currently working on your hat and was wondering about row 5. What does it mean, “working in 3rd loops?” Thank you! Love the hat. Doing it in red for a Christmas present 🙂

    • Sharon September 19, 2016, 4:48 pm

      Sorry! Just saw the explanation further down.

  • Jessica Catlin September 23, 2016, 5:32 pm

    Love this pattern it’s beautiful! Im currently making it with a worsted weight 4 yarn..u understand u have to make adjustments, what would those adjustments be? What is the length it should measure since í won’t do 72 rows? And are there any other adj I would need? Thank you

    • Rebecca October 17, 2016, 9:15 am

      You just need to factor in the final measurements of the hat when adapting the pattern. (So for instance, the hat is 20″ wide, so you’ll need your flat piece to measure that.) I can’t get much more detailed than that, as my general rule is that if you wish to adapt the pattern to a different category of yarn (or for any other reason), figuring out the stitch counts, etc. is on you. I wish you luck! 🙂

  • Yoggi October 14, 2016, 1:40 am

    Hi Rebecca, first thank you for all the beautiful patterns. I look forward to all of the fun. ? I have read through all the comments a few times and have learned how to work the new stitch ( hdc 3rd lp ) but I’m very confused on this one. Am I doing a row of hdc 3rd lp across or sc+dc in 3rd lp, skp 1 st across or 1hdc 3rd lp, skp 1 st, sc+dc, skp 1st across? Yes I said I was confused lol. This really means alot to me, I am making this beautiful hat for my daughter that is preparing to join the Navy. Knowing we probably won’t be seeing one another much through her journey. God bless you. Again Thank you.

    • Rebecca October 17, 2016, 9:17 am

      Are you referring to Row 5? “Working in 3rd loops, (SK next ST, SC+DC in next ST) across” just means that you’re doing your (SK, SC+DC) in the 3rd loops of the previous row’s stitches instead of the top loops like you would normally do. So, the second option you mentioned is the correct one.

  • Joanna Grimstad October 17, 2016, 9:49 am

    Do you think that if I used a smaller crochet hook and crocheted a little tighter that I could scale this down enough to fit a 6 year old child? I just love the look and I know my granddaughter would too!

      If you do it that way, you’ll end up with a stiffer fabric that might not slouch properly, and you’d really be guessing on what your final measurements would be. A better way to do it would be to look up the standard measurements of a child’s slouch hat and adjust your starting chain and row count accordingly (i.e. measure as you go). Since this hat is worked flat, it wouldn’t be as complicated as it would be if we were working in the round.

    Do you have a youtube tutorial on this?

    • Rebecca November 14, 2016, 12:27 pm

      I don’t, sorry 🙂

    Question: What do you do if you are not a rank beginner crochet person but a advanced pattern will result in your ball of yarn being thrown across the living room?
    Answer: Make one of your hats!! Perfect blend for an in-between ability person like me. Easy to follow directions. WOW! I am so proud of myself! Thank you for the pattern. I’m half done and can’t wait to finish. It is much better than crocheting cotton dishrags forever!

    • Rebecca December 2, 2016, 2:23 pm

      Aww, thank you so much! I’m SO glad you are finding success with my patterns. (No one wants to crochet dishrags forever!) Lol 🙂

    Absolutely beautiful, I just got this amazing purple merino wool yarn and I want to make something special with it, I found my special pattern! I hope I have enough (100gms) cause that skein was the last one at the little store where I bought it! Thank you so much for sharing your talent, best wishes to you and you’re beautiful family

    What a great hat in going to attempt making it thank you for sharing the pattern 🙂

    Thanks for the fab pattern! I’ve already made the rustic version with #5 yarn. I started the Yenni today with #3 and it wasn’t looking like it would be slouchy enough. So I’ve started over with a starting ch of 35. I think it’s going to be just right!

  • Lily January 16, 2018, 11:51 pm

    Hello!! Your patterns are amazing and easy to follow, I loved the Yenni slouch hat, my question is, how can I make it for a 2 year old? TIA

    • Rebecca January 17, 2018, 8:23 pm

      Hi, thank you for the kind words! Unfortunately I don’t offer much help in terms of rewriting patterns for sizes that I don’t already offer. However with this one, it’s just a rectangle, so if you figure out how tall it would need to be, that would be your starting chain (minus about 1.5″ for the band), and if you figure out how big around it would need to be, you would just crochet the repeats until it is that long. Hope that helps 🙂

    Hi I have been following the pattern then realised I have been repeating rows 1-5 not 2-5. I have pulled it back to row 5 and started again but now I have the first rib on the opposite side to the rest. I can’t see a solution because the first set is 5 rows and the rest are sets of four. Thanks.

    • Rebecca March 8, 2018, 10:34 am

      Hi Jan! If you’re doing an even number of rows for your repeat (and as you said, we are; we’re doing a 4-row repeat) and you’re turning every row, then every even-numbered row should end up on one side, and every odd-numbered row should end up on the other side. If we called those sides A and B, here’s what it would look like:

      Row1: A
      Row2: B
      Row3: A
      Row4: B
      Row5: A
      Row6: B (that’s a repeat of Row2, also side B)
      Row7: A (that’s a repeat of Row3, also side A)
      Row8: B (that’s a repeat of Row4, also side B)
      Row9: A (that’s a repeat of Row5, also side A)
      Row10: B (that’s a repeat of Row2, also side B)
      Row11: A (that’s a repeat of Row3, also side A)
      Row12: B (that’s a repeat of Row4, also side B)
      Row13: A (that’s a repeat of Row5, also side A)

      So I’m not sure what it is that you’re doing, but mathematically, the pattern works. You have to have either added or missed a row at some point to throw the pattern off. Hope that helps!

    I want to make the slouch longer. Do I just take any even number and add 1 to it?

  • Linda December 10, 2018, 9:25 am

    No matter how many times I try this hat the count does not come out to 28. I get to row #3 and it’s off. Tried many times. I give up.
