Super Stylish Slouchy Beanie

Updated: Nov 16, 2018

I am such a sucker for a nice slouchy beanie. I made this one using Lion Brand Mandala yarn in the colorway "Spirit".

Honestly, I am not a big fan of acrylic yarn. Many times, I find that acrylic yarns have a rough texture, pill too much, lack drape, and look cheap. HOWEVER, this yarn is lovely! It works up well, is pretty soft, has beautiful drape, and the colorways are gorgeous!

Anyway, back to the beanie. The pattern is called the Shiplap Slouch from Little Monkeys Crochet and you can find it here.

Other than basic crochet skills, you will need to know how to:

  • Start off with a Magic Circle

  • Crochet a HHDC (Herringbone Half Double Crochet), and

  • Crochet into the 3rd loop of a HDC

All three of these tutorials are below.

I hope that you try this awesome pattern. If you do, let me know how you like it and share your photos.

Go forth and Craft All the Things! ❤️
