Soo I never would have come up with this slouchy hat had I not made this adorable cup cake beanie by the talented Twinkie Chan
see her * paid * patterns on ravelry!
I was intrigure because this hat is NOT made from the top down and that's all I will say about this pattern here is my brand new slouchy pattern!!! I will release variation later this week and month and I have been making this hat non stop here is the basic version
chain any odd number from 21 to 27 ( 21 will be not so slouchy 27 will be very slouchy)
you are working this hat side to side....
Row 1 hdc in 3rd chain from hook *skip 1, 2 hdc in the next* repeat until the end
Row 2 sl over the first stitch chain 2, hdc, *skip 1, 2dc) repeat until the end... in the last stitch do 2 hdc so it slants and increases, ***every row should have the same amount of stitches we skip 2 on one side and add two on the next**
|Play around with color changes to highlight the swirl... for now it looks like a slanted scarf thing....|
Keep working thing the pattern ( 2hdc skip 1) *Increase on one side leave off 2
one side edge is straight and one is wavy.. the wavy side is the decrease one*
then sew the first row to the last, and take a 8 inch or so piece of yarn and weave it in and out of the straight edge and pull tight and knot it! turn your hat right side out and you are done!!!
