Kameron is a fun unisex slouch hat that is best made with a full bodied #4 Aran weight yarn that has nice drape to it. For the hat pictured I used Caron Pantone, which is categorized as a #5 bulky, however, I found this yarn to be very soft and flexible and worked up more like a Aran weight #4 yarn.

The hat is worked in joined rounds, meaning you will slip stitch at the end of each round and begin a new round by chaining a specified amount. Increases are worked in a nontraditional manner where you will use both the post and the top of the stitch, there I go thinking outside the box again!

The Yarn


For this hat I used 6 links of Caron Pantone X, #5 Bulky (60% Acrylic, 20% Nylon, 20% Merino Wool).  As you know Caron Pantone comes in braids of 5 links, so you will need one full braid and one more link of another.

What I like best about this yarn is how soft it is.  The wool gives the item warmth while the nylon allows for stretch.  The acrylic provides fullness while allowing the yarn to still be affordable.

The next thing I like about this yarn is what most people don’t like.  This yarn is known to split easily, but I say embrace the split and use it to your advantage.  Take your time using this particular yarn and let is do its thing!  If it spreads out that is great!  I have found when this happens it makes for a much more full stitch without the extra bulkiness!

WHAT MAKES THIS PATTERN UNIQUE?


The Kameron Slouch Hat is so universal, perfect for men and women, and it is a quick crochet pattern.  You can use most Aran weight yarns or #5 bulky yarns to crochet the hat.  Keep in mind that it is a slouch hat so the yarn should have good movement.

What makes the pattern really different however is the way you will increase. Some increases will require you to use two parts of the same stitch. This means you will use both the post of the stitch and the top of the stitch to work your increase.

How Long Does It Take To Crochet That?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Notes 


  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms.
  • All measurements given are unblocked.
  • Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.
  • Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours frogging your work & crocheting it again!
  • Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger. Learn more about testing gauge.
  • Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge. Learn more about substituting yarn.
  • This pattern is written for 1 size, however size adjustments are suggested under the heading “Size & Measurements”.
  • At the end of each row, the stitch count is given in parenthesis.
  • ● The number before the stitch abbreviation represents the number of stitches you will work into the stitch from the previous round.
    ● The number after the stitch abbreviation represents the number of consecutive stitches to be worked in each stitch from the previous round.
    ● Ch 2 at the beginning of each round does not count as a stitch unless otherwise stated.
    ● Always work your first stitch into the stitch directly below the beginning ch of the current round
    ● Some increases will require you to use two parts of the same stitch. This means you will use both the post of the stitch and the top of the stitch to work your increase.
    ● If you choose brim option 1, use the same size hook you used on the hat body. This stitch can get very tight very easy. Try to use a loose tension when working this brim option.

Size & Measurements


  • Diameter at the crown, 6.5” (13.5cm) using a standard imperial/metric ruler
  • Width laid flat at round 11= 10.15” (27.5cm) imperial/metric ruler
  • Height from center of mc to edge of brim 10.5 27cm) imperial/metric ruler

Hat Size Tip!

Learn more about crochet hat sizes & making the correct size on our detailed post: Crochet Hat Sizes!

Size Adjustments

  • To adjust the size of your hat, you must first know who you are making it for.  If you are making this hat for a child then you will want to stop increasing when your crown measures the appropriate measurement for a child, usually about 8-10 inches.  For an adult large, you will want to add one more increase row than that of the pattern.

Abbreviations

We try our best to include all crochet abbreviations in the list above for the crochet pattern, but sometimes we may forget one or two.

Techniques You Will Need 


Kameron is worked in single rounds.  You will slip stitch at the end of each round and chain up to begin the next round.

Kameron Slouch Hat Pattern Instructions


Let’s go!

Begin by making a mc.

  • Holding the tail of the yarn between your thumb and ring finger, wrap the yarn clockwise around your index finger and middle finger tow times crisscrossing the yarn over the top. Secure the working end with your pinky. Working from below the crisscross, insert your hook between the two strands. Use your hook to pull the top strand under the bottom strand. Twist your hook, yarn over with the working end of your yarn and pull through. You now have what looks like a large slip knot on your hook. (when working into the magic circle be sure to work over your tail also. Leave enough tail to pull at the end of round 1.
  • You can also find the video tutorial of how to make this magic circle on my website at Knottie Hooks
