Comfy Cozy Slouchy Beanie - Free Crochet Pattern

Hey there hookers! 

Jude wanted in on my pictures (;


I'm back with another awesome free pattern!



Simple, comfortable, and quick to work up were all on my mind when coming up with this hat.
What makes it most unique is the type of yarn I used. Red Heart sent me some samples of yarn to review for them, and I'm so excited to get to play with this reflective yarn! (Check out my review on Red Heart's reflective yarn here)

I was worried that this yarn would be too scratchy for a hat, but the finished product is incredibly soft! It's holding up nicely and even Jude loves to wear it around sometimes :P

The size is easily adjustable, and this hat as is fits small-medium sized heads (think teen/adult). This is my first slouch hat and I'm so proud of it! It's a little out of my comfort zone to be wearing such a bright color, but then I thought.. why not?? I need to come out of my comfort zone ever now and then. So be prepared to see me coming from a mile away!

  1. What an awesome hat!!! I want to make on in New Orleans Saints football colors for my first one! I need to order some of this yarn online as I have never seen it in a store yet.
    Thank you for sharing this pattern; it looms great on you and I love all the stripes!

    1. LOL Thank you very much (:
      I didnt start out crocheting by reading patterns, they looked crazy to me too at first! I started by watching youtube videos over and over and slowly picked it up.
      I'm looking forward to checking out your site as well (:

  4. What a great pattern! If you're not using the reflective yarn, would a regular worsted weight be an okay substitute?

    1. Thank you! (: If you don't have the reflective yarn, I suggest using something a little bulkier than a worsted weight. Not super bulky, but the reflective yarn is a little thicker than your regular worsted weight.

  5. Hi! This is a striking pattern! However, you don't really mention when you change from the main color to the next color, nor do you mention whether you tie off each round or just carry the yarn. Would you please explain?

    1. Hello! I'm so sorry I never specified. I just carried the yarn so i wouldnt have a million ends to tie in. I will edit the post soon with the color changes. thank you for pointing that out!

  6. That is a great beanie. Orange is my favourite colour and works really well in this pattern. Think I'll have to give this one a go:-) Great job.
