The Kristen Slouch crochet pattern is a super adorable hat that comes with three brim options!
I was inspired to create this crochet hat because I had first created a Kristen Cardigan! This cardigan was made with the same stitch you see in the hat and I just loved the amazing texture it created. I thought it would make a lovely hat!
I decided to go with 3 brim options because I wanted this to be a hat for everyone! I love the bonnet style mini-slouch version, pictured above, but knew that was not everyone’s style!
The other two brim options are very simple and make it so the hat is unisex and can be worn by anyone! This texture is amazing and looks great on both guys and girls. The pom pom is totally optional as well, and the hat still looks great without it.
This crochet hat pattern is made using worsted weight (#4) yarn. WeCrochet Brava Worsted was used for the sample hat pictured in this blog post!
Brava Worsted is a go-to yarn for me when making hats! It’s very soft, but sturdy. It is 100% acrylic and can be machine washed and dried. It comes in a huge variety of colors and is very affordable!
This crochet hat is worked from the bottom up with the brim added at the end. This pattern has 6 sizes ranging from infant to adult!
The Kristen Slouch crochet pattern is rated Intermediate in pattern difficulty. The main stitch is a bit more of an intermediate stitch and there are several steps involved in making the hat.
There are three brim options for this hat. First, is the bonnet style brim with the chains and poms at the end. This is the style pictured in this blog post. You can do tassels at the end as well if you’d like. And the pom at the top is also optional.
The second brim option is a front post ribbing style all the way around, and the third is a simple single crochet brim. Both of these are great ways to make the hat more unisex.
