2 New Slouchy Hat Pattern Books You Need to Know About

If you’d like to knit or crochet a trendy new hat for yourself or a friend, there are 2 excellent new slouchy hat pattern books you need to know about:

Crocheted Beanies & Slouchy Hats by Julie King

If you want to crochet a slouchy beanie-style hat or a slouchy beret, this book has bunches of fabulous patterns you’ll want to take a look at. The book also features one pattern for an earflap beanie, plus bunches of patterns for traditional, fitted beanies.

These patterns will give you a broad variety of different hat styles to add to your wardrobe. The majority of these hats are casual styles that would be fun to wear with jeans, khakis or your favorite athleisure gear.

There are also some dressier styles, like the lacy beret pictured on the front cover of the book. I could see dressing that hat either up or down — perhaps wearing it with lovely, drapey dresses or a frilly blouse paired with a ladylike skirt. Some of the hat designs feature button details — and, if you like dressing up, I think you could make those particular hat styles look dressier simply by choosing fancy, elegant buttons to use for your accents.

Whatever your personal style is like, if it includes crocheted hats, you’re sure to find some suitable styles included in this book.

This book has its fair share of slouchy hat patterns including patterns for knitting slouchy berets and slouchy beanies. The book also features patterns for traditional tams, fitted beanies and fanciful hoods. I love the variety of stylish hats in this book, and I think you will be quite enchanted by it, too.

Some of these hats feature intricate cable designs. Some of them are lacy and feminine. Some of them feature interesting texture patterns. There’s a mix of casual and dressy looks, although the majority of these patterns lean towards the casual side.
