Grid Slouch

Here in Kansas, the weather could be 70 degrees one day and 32 the next. Like last week, for example. This hat is also great for those quick runs to the store when your hair is a mess, or for wearing to a weekend camping trip, or a music festival, or on a windy day. Basically it’s my new favorite accessory and it should be yours, too!

For this slouchy crochet hat we are using the Grid Stitch – which consists of double crochets, single crochets, and chain stitches. Super easy, and super quick to work up!

I am using Twill Worsted yarn in the “Dungaree” colorway for my Grid Slouch. This yarn is absolutely divine, and is a 100% Superwash Merino Wool. Since it’s superwash it will not felt when washed, and is so soft to the touch. You’ll be surprised it’s wool!

Of course, if you are allergic to wool or would like to use up some of your stash, a regular worsted weight yarn would work just fine.

Materials:

Worsted Weight Yarn (Twill Worsted used)
-approx. (107, 146, 186, 200) yards

Crochet hook in size H/5mm

Gauge:

17 Grid sts x 11 rows = 4” square
