Mens Quick and Easy Slouch

Men's Slouch 

(modeled by a woman)

A friend of mine made me a logo so in return I made him a slouch hat and will also be making him some slippers. I decided to write out how I made it as I went. This hat would probably take less than an hour to make and works up quickly using 4 strands of DK (or light worsted) and a 10 mm hook. It should fit a 23 inch head and as you can see it is a loose fit on my new head. 

Slouch Crochet Mens


DK Yarn - Held 4 strands together
10mm hook
Yarn needle


Starting with the magic circle

Round 1: Ch 3, 9 dc into circle. Join to top of ch 3 with a sl st. (10)

Round 2: Ch 3, dc in same stitch as ch 3. 2 dc in each stitch around. Join to top of ch 3 with a sl st. (20)

Round 3:  Ch 3, dc in same st as ch 3, *dc in next st, 2 dc in next* around. Join to the top of ch 3 with a sl st (30 hdc)

Round 4: Ch 3, dc in same st as ch 2, dc in next 2 stitches, *2 dc in next stitch, dc in next 2 st* around. Join to the top of ch 3 with a sl st (40 hdc)

Circle should have an 8 inch diameter

Rounds 5-8: Ch 3, dc around. join to ch 3 with a sl st

Round 9: Ch 3, dc in next 8, dc2tog. * dc in next 9, dc2tog* repeat around. Join to top of ch 3 with a sl st (36) 

Round 10: Ch 1, sc around. Join with a sl st to first sc. Finish off

Weave in all ends


  1. COOL! Thank you, I need a new hat pattern :)


  2. Hi Teri, linked back to you :D


  3. I am going to make jacob(sos) a camo one :D I will send you a pic with him wearing it... LOL even though he is 16 he liked to model rofl

    1. I would love to see it when you are done. If you have any problems with sizing let me know.

  4. Hi, love your pattern, but I was wondering if you have to use dk yarn with 4 strands. I would like to use camo. Thank you

    1. Hi there, I used 4 strands of DK to get the bulky look that my customer wanted. If you wanted to use less strands I would suggest trying to find another pattern, sorry I can't help any more.

  5. would super bulky work with 1 strand

    1. Hi there, I suggest doing the first 4 rounds and measuring the circle to see if it measures 8 inches. If not you could still use that yarn but just increase the hook size or do another round with a few more increases.

  6. Thanks! Hubby wanted a slouchy hat. I used what I had on hand. Red heart super saver in black - 3 strands. N hook. Followed the pattern as written, the 8" measurement was very helpful to make sure I was on track. Turned out perfect, about 50 minutes start to finish.
