If you need a simple hat without a lot of frill or extras, the Dallas Hat is for you! I absolutely love this easy, but stunning crochet slouchy hat design!
It is one of my go-to hat patterns for gifting and donating! This hat would also be a great seller in markets, craft fairs, or in your Etsy shop!
This crochet hat pattern was actually inspired by the stitch! I saw the stitch design in one of my favorite crochet books and wanted to use it!
I wanted to create a hat with just a small brim. Nothing to big or bulky. I wanted it to be slouchy, but also have the option to make it a beanie.
The crochet stitch really helped to create the hat. It is a simple and quick workup and gives the hat such an elegant look!
I really love to make this hat for friends, along with the matching scarf! I have gotten so many compliments on this set from others! It’s also great for donating or selling!
The Dallas Hat uses worsted weight (#4) yarn. I personally love to make it in Lion Brand Heartland yarn.
I just really love the color choices of this yarn. Nearly all of the colors have a cool heathered look to them, making it very unique.
Heartland is a very soft yarn, made of 100% acrylic. It also has some tweed options, which are 94% acrylic and 6% rayon.
You’ll find this pattern rated Easy on the difficulty scale. You’ll need to know just the basic stitch combinations as well as the chainless foundation single crochet stitch. The combination of the basic crochet stitches is what create the beautiful tulip stitch.
This crochet slouchy hat is a bottom-up workup. A small trim is added at the end, if desired.
You will cinch the top of the hat together with a yarn needle and a long tail of the yarn.
This pattern uses the tulip crochet stitch to create the design, with some decreasing done at the top of the pattern to close it.
The pattern comes in sizes Toddler, Child, and Adult. Also, you’ll find instructions for how to make it a regular beanie or to make it a longer slouch hat.
