I am one who LOVES texture; something I can rub my hands across and relish in the feel, be it super soft or super bumpy. I had this one cake of Caron Cakes yarn, just because I liked the color, but I didn’t know what to do with it. It has been sitting there for a while until a few days ago, until I picked it up determined to make something.
Seed Stitch, Knit-Look Slouchy Hat
- Caron Cakes
- G Hook
Only one size is available right now, but if fits everyone in my family; from my three year old to myself, but since you work off of measurements, it can easily be adjusted.
- Row 1: Sl st into 2nd ch from hook and across, turn. (7 sts)
- Row 2: Ch 1, working in BLO, sl st into each of the 7 sts across, turn. (7 sts)
Repeat row 2 until desired length or until brim measures 17″, make sure to end on an even number, join the two ends of the brim together and sl st through the back loops of each end.
Rotate work 180 degrees so you’re working along the sides of the brim.
- Round 1: Ch 1, sc in same stitch and in each stitch around (be sure you have an even number), join with a sl st to first sc.
- Round 2: Ch 1, sc in back loop of first st, sc in front loop of next st, *sc in back loop of next st, sc in front loop of next st,** repeat from *to** around, join.
- Round 3: Ch 1, sc in front loop of first st, sc in back loop of next st, *sc in front loop of next st, sc in back loop of next st,** repeat from *to** around, join.
Repeat Rounds 2 & 3 until you have 8″ (or desired amount of slouch) from the brim.
- Round 1: Ch 1, maintaining pattern, *sc in next 3 sts, sc2tog,** repeat from *to** around, join.
***To maintain your stitch pattern on decreases, work through front and back loops as necessary.***
- Round 2: Ch 1, *sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog,** repeat from *to** around, join.
- Round 3: Ch 1, *sc in next st, sc2tog,** repeat from *to** around, join.
- Round 4: Ch 1, (sc2tog)around, join.
- Round 5: Repeat Round 4.
Fasten off leaving a long tail.
Weave through remaining stitches, pull to close top of hat. Secure and weave in ends.
That’s it folks! Super easy and a lot faster than knitting!!
