After last week’s Crochet Sweater Wrap, I needed a fairly simple project to give my hands a rest. This crochet slouch beanie seemed perfect! I have a free crochet pattern today and I’m also giving away the finished product to one of my subscribers. So if you haven’t subscribed, make sure you do so now at the top of this page!

For this beanie, I used Loops & Threads Shabby in Black. This pattern works up quick and you can have it done in about an evening. It’s incredibly warm since it comes down past the ears. I made one in cream and I wear it all the time because I love it so much!

I used less than one skein of the Loops & Threads Shabby yarn for this project. If you like how this works up, you could also make an easy, matching V-Stitch Infinity Scarf that I made a couple weeks ago!

  • If always been interested in knitting/crochet since i was a kid but i never actually buy it or try to do it. i think its so convenient !! You should add some pictures for those who are completely clueless like me

    • Thanks so much for the suggestion! I’ve actually thought about doing a tutorial series or even offering a course to do a complete project for beginners! Now that someone has suggested it, I think it’s time to get serious about offering it. It’s so much fun and a really good stress-reliever. Plus, it’s super satisfying once you finish it.

  • I wish I knew how to do crochet, I guess its never too late to learn. Very cool beanie and it’s amazing you made it yourself!

    • It’s definitely never too late to learn. I picked it up so quickly…it’s really not as complex as it looks. If you’re looking for something to do that’s fairly relaxing, this is it! Plus, it’s so satisfying to see the complete project!

    • It’s super easy to pick up (I taught myself). I’m actually thinking about putting together an e-course for people who want to learn and I can teach entire projects step-by-step. Once you learn the basic stitches, it’s really easy from there.

  • Ooo thanks for this guide! I think I’m actually going to try this, I’ve got some spare yarn in my drawer 🙂 thank you!

  • This is so beautiful! And wonderful color as well. Never have learnt how to to do crochet. My mother used to do this for me when I was in school, (many many years ago)
