While I was out on maternity leave, a good friend of mine taught me how to crochet. I took to it with ease and have been crocheting up a storm! One of my first projects was the “Jenny Slouch Hat” which I have dubbed the “Hipster Slouch Beenie.” I mean, look at it. It totally belongs on every head in Silver Lake and Los Feliz!
The pattern works up very fast, and is super easy to make. Be sure to keep your stitches loose on the single crochets, or it will be too tight. I made one for myself and one for Layla. For Layla’s version, I kept to the pattern, but for mine, I had to add a little room as I not only have a large head, but I have a crap ton of hair too! Modifications are easy enough on this one.
Little Monkey Crochet is the author of this pattern which can be found on their site by clicking HERE. For this pattern, I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes worsted weight yarn in Claret Heather (Knit Picks makes the BEST heathers). Find this yarn (and a huge selection of others) HERE.
Post your modifications, photos and/or links to your finished beenie in the comments! I would love to see them.
