Who doesn’t love argyle?

This is one of those “simple to make, but looks hard” kind of pattern that you can whip up while watching your favorite show on the weekend. Once you get the hang of the color changes, making this hat is easy.

Quick note on the yarn:

I used KnitPal’s New Mexico Cherry and Silver (available here). This is a #3 DK yarn. With the two hanks you can easily make both the Argyle Hat and the Argyle Short Scarf. If you want to make a thicker hat and scarf, you can use a #4 medium worsted yarn instead. Check the yardage! I used all 500 yards (250 Cherry & 250 Silver) to make the scarf and hat.

Sizing:

Adult Slouchy Hat measures approximately 21 inches (53 cm) in circumference by 9.5 inches (24 cm) in height. 

This pattern is worked in multiples of 16 + 1. The hat is worked from top to brim in continuous rounds. 

Chain 81.  Close the round by crocheting a slip stitch into the first stitch of the chain. Make sure the chain is not twisted before you close the round. 

Round 1: CH 2. HDC into every stitch of the round. When you reach the CH 2, place a stitch marker on the chain to easily identify the beginning of each round. 

Round 2: HDC into the stitch above the CH 2 from the previous round, and into every stitch of the round. You will now work the pattern in continuous rounds, so you will not need to close the round and CH 2 at the beginning of each round. 

Round 3 – 7: HDC into every stitch of the round. Note: Crochet 7 rounds for a form-fitting hat. For a slouchy hat, crochet 12 rounds instead of 7.  

Argyle Pattern

Once you complete Round 7 (or 12 for the slouchy hat), you will need to refer to the chart included with this pattern to crochet the next 15 rounds. You will need to work with both colors of yarn simultaneously while completing the chart, and will need to carry the yarn you are not using. 

To switch colors: Complete half of a HDC so you have 3 loops on your hook. Yarn over in the color you want to switch to and pull through all three loops. You are now ready to crochet in the new color.

Round 16-19: HDC into every stitch of the round in color 1. You do not need to carry color 2 yarn for these rows, and will not need color 2 until you crochet the brim. 

Brim (in color 2):

Switch yarn colors using a HDC color stitch, then CH 2 in color 2. 

BRound 1: DC in each stitch of the round. 

BRound 2: FPDC into the CH 2 (at the beginning of the round). BPDC into the first DC of the round. FPDC. BPDC. Continue alternating between FPDC and BPDC until you complete the round. BRound 3: You’ll be extending the stitches from the previous round to create a ribbed look. So crochet a FPDC in each FPDC of the round, and a BPDC in every BPDC.

Repeat Row 3 until you make a brim in your desired width. For a narrow brim, like the one in the hat photo, stop after completing Round 3. 

Once you’ve completed the brim, weave in all your loose ends.

Cinching the top closed:

On the top of the hat (the side opposite the brim), you’ll sew in and out every few stitches all the way around the top. Pull the thread tight once you finish sewing to close the top of the hat. Sew back and forth across the closed part of the beanie to reinforce the closure stitches, and knot your yarn. 

Weave in any remaining ends and you are finished. If you chose to add a pom pom, sew your pom onto your beanie.
