Marissa's Slouchy

This hat was designed for a beautiful 19 year that is currently battling cancer You can see her Blog right HERE 

If you like this design PLEASE consider making one for something you or someone you know who is fighting cancer, take it to a hospital or donate one to a charity like Knots of Love




Supplies :

* if you are making one to donate USE SOFT yarn some charities and hospitals only except certain yarn brands so check first! The reason for this is people going through Chemo have very sensitive skin and you can make the most beautiful hat but its of no use if it hurts them! 2  Brands I use are ( not all charities except) Redheart soft ( NEVER EVER use supersavor) and Caron's simply soft ( most charities love this one)

size J hook or I hook

make a magic circle or chain 3 and join
*I worked this hat in the round and used a stitch marker to join

Round 1 - chain 3, 11 dc
Round 2- 1dc,1FPdc, repeat so there are 12 dcs and 12 FPdcs
Round 3- 2dc, 1 FPdc, repeat 11times * All FPdc should line up in every round,
Round 4- 3dc, 1 FPdc, repeat 11 times
Round 5- 3dc, 1 FPdc, repeat 11 times
Repeat round 5 until you have the length you want minus 1 inch
for a little bit of slouchy do a total of 15 rows

* if you hat seem a tad to loose add a few decreases in the first row of the single crochets *
Once you have the length you want skip one stich and sl
Last Round Crochet this tight or go down a hook size  ( repeat until it measures an inch about 3-5 rounds depending on gauge yarn and hook size)
Sc in back loop of each stitch .

Add a flower or leave as is.


Here is a variation of the hat I did! Sorry no pattern at this time for the variation ( its a tad complex and when I figure out how to write it so it's easier to understand I will post it, but have fun with the post stitches and don't forget to share your creations with the Crochet Chiq Facebook FANPAGE

E crochet hook

Skill - Advanced Beginner
(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

suggested lengths _
Woman's s/m ~18 shells
l/xl ~20 shells
Mans~ 23 shells
child~ 11-15 ( 11 fits most five year olds)

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

Thread Cross Bookmark

Sides and top of cross
Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides.

When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center.

On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel.

I wrote this pattern at the request of AFC Check  them out to see all the other amazing patterns and videos they have!!!


Hello everyone, Have you noticed how many celebs are donning crochet items? I've noticed a lot of crochet shorts out there, why buy them when you can make them with this free pattern? The other upside to making them is you can make them the length, color and size you want!! I will write out directions for a small adjust them as you go for your size. For example to start  do FDQC until you are from one hip to the other and then add a few extra stitches for the seam. 
To start this pattern is worked int twp pieces the front and back. They will look like undies until we get to the legs

Use crochet hook size J
Use any 4 ply yarn 
1-Start by doing Foundation quadruple crochet 50 2-sc in each stitch for a total of 50


3- make shells (2hdc,ch1,2hdc) across skipping 3 sc in between each shell. 4- do six rows of shells ( skipping 4) …
